Good morning, I hope I can help you.

 

If you mean you want to just fit a spare wheel then yes.

 

If you mean you want to remove the tyre from the rim and then fit a new tyre to it then you will find that extremely difficult.

 

It could take you hours if you are lucky for a job that takes minutes in a tyre shop.

 

Bill.
