Upon closer examination of my 05 Swing I noticed the left lower skirt under the foot platform was broken as well as cracked in three places.  I tried with poor results to weld it ,so have the new piece on order should be here early next week, also on closer look at the tires I am finding serious crack both in the sidewalls and also   tread area. I have ordered the Michelin power pure and they should be here also next week, I am going to attempt the wheel removal based on the examples and fine pictorials from this site and will take the wheels to the dealer for tire mounting. 
Wish me luck ,I hope I have made the right choice in tires ther does not seem to be a lot of choice in our area.

Cheers,
Scroller

Right on. Rarch
30 years ago I think I would have been less hesitant to do this job. I think Father Time  has somewhat limited my dexterity  and arthritis  is not helping either but we shall give it a good go . As the saying goes nothing ventured nothing gained.
