Huh? Speak Engrish? Are you asking if you can take your tires off your rims at home?

You can do it with a set of tire irons but will probably damage the wheel and tire. Doing it right requires buying a bead breaker ($80) plus valve stem remover ($3) and will take a few hours if you've never done it before. Just find a mom and pop tire shop and give them $20 to do it for you.

it is not that difficult if you have quality tire irons/levers. The toughest part is breaking the bead. Pull the valve stem core and then yes you could use your hi lift jack to break the bead. support the rim/tire with 2X4 or similar and wedge the base of the jack in close to the rim lip as possible and jack something heavy forcing the base to pop the bead. You need to do it all around the rim on both sides until the bead is completely loose around the rim. Know use the tire levers to lever the tire off the rim. make sure you hold the underside of the tire bead up towards the center of the rim so it is easier to get it started off the rim. use some good soapy water as lube to make it easier. You can get a cheap bead breaker at harbor frieght to make the job easier. You can use some plastic peices cut from shampoo bottles or milk jugs to help protect the rims when using the tire irons
