I've got a couple straps. I think I will try that with one section of tire and see about finishing the job with tire irons--a combined effort.
I also wonder about slipping a strap or two in/under/around a tire that is coming off? That should help, too.
This reminds me I need to make a valve fishing tool as well. Always have a terrible time getting tube's valve to come through hole when installing new tire on KLR.
