You will find that the Harley Tri Glide rear wheels are similar to your car rims. To remove them from the motorcycle you will need to break the lug nuts free while the trike is on the ground, in gear with the parking brake on. Then you can use the proper Tri Glide jacking point to raise the motorcycle and remove the rear wheel. Once again safety is the most important part of this process. Bob leaves the center jack in place and has a jack stand placed in the right spot. Now with one of the Harley trike wheels removed we can look at the tire for wear and get ready to work on the brakes.
