I have an Allegro 2000 that needs the tires and tubes replaced on the main gear. I am going to get new 400x6, 6 ply tires with matching tubes from Desser. It is my understanding that these tires will fit the rims as well as the Allegro wheel pants. It seems that the wheels for the main gear have split rims. I have never changed a tire on a split rim. Must I remove the entire wheel from the gear, or simply deflate the tire and remove the outer part of the split rim leaving the inner part togather with the disc brake assembly still bolted to the gear? I would appreciate some advice and counsel from someone who has done this disassembly and re-assembly. Many thanks!

Hugh,

When I've changed mine (also tubes/tires from Desser) I've removed the entire wheel. That's a good time to clean and inspect everything related to the wheel, axle, brakes, etc.

Here are some good instructions on tire changing.

Use lots of talc when assembling and make sure the tube doesn't have a pinch or fold somewhere.

It's an easy project and is fun knowing the money that you're NOT spending having somebody else do it.
