Did you use zip ties to get the tire off, or just on?

I used them to put the tires on. They help to keep the bead centered on the rim making the install easier. I use this as leverage to break the bead.

Seriously if it wasn't for Jimrad changing my tire in the past I would be clueless. Thank you Jimmy for showing me the ropes on DIY.
