Until I bought a lift table putting the back tire on the 1500 was a PITA! After the table with the removable panel under the rear tire it is much easier. I take my wheels off and then take them to a private shop. I called one of our 'approved dealers' a while back and they quoted me over $100 just to change the tire if I carried it in!! Don't buy much from them anymore. My shop buddy says Wings have stiffer tire sidewalls than HD's but have a drop center rim, so much easier to change tire.
