Need advice on taking off tires

I have to take All my tires off and take them somewhere to have new ones put on because I can't pull the trailer with the rotten tires on it. Any advice on taking off the tires...do's and don'ts and how-to's???

Find a couple of wood blocks stack them so they are high enough for the rear tires to clear the ground, and place them in front of the front wheels on your trailer. pull the trailer up on the blocks with your tow vehicle, and remove the rear wheels. It would be a very good idea to loossen the lugs on the wheels before doing this.
Get those tires mounted and balanced, and put them on your trailer. Then, do the same for the front wheels. Piece of cake.
I make it sound easier than it is, but not much.
Good luck.

Block Chock Block Always Block

Be sure to block the wheels that are up on the platform if you are planning to unhitch to take the removed tires to town.

In fact block them before removing the other tires anyway, whether you are going to unhitch or not. It is an essential habit to get into. I know from bad experience.
