    hi all thanks for your quick replays i thought about using a manual bead breaker and leavers but i dont want to damage the rims as they dont have a scratch on them

    a manual bead breaker won't damage the rims if you are careful and take your time, so you could break the beads first and then use something like piece of foam, rag or cardboard to protect the rims where you are levering. use plenty of lubrication too.
    failing that if they are tubeless get some of that puncture repair stuff that comes in a can .

    "puncture repair stuff that comes in a can"

    Works OK but tricky stuff to get rid of. Tyre companies charge to clean rims up after it has been used.

    yes as col pointed out there are issues with using the tyre repair "stuff" but i only mentioned this as a last resort.
    I'd still have a go with a bead breaker and levers, it's how we used to change the tyres on truck wheels both alloy and steel.
