Yes, it’s tight between those rear rails.
And as I said in my post on the other threads...there’s 0 pounds of pressure in the tire/rim during install (or removal) And, once in, I fill to about 20 pounds to completely lock-in place.
And if I ever needed to remove, I’ll need to deflate completely, then lower to ground, then re-fill to 75 pounds or so prior to install.
If you want to change yourself...make sure you carry a bottle jack and a breaker bar with sockets.
Or, in my case, I use my hydraulic levelers to raise the side up accordingly.
