Water in tires - how to get out?

I have water in my tires...I can hear it sloshing. What is the best way to get it out other than going to a tire shop and paying them to do it?

Is there a way to do it myself?

Take a REALLY big sharp knife and run it into the tread and roll the whole to the bottom.................LOL. ONLY JOKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TAKE OUT THE VALE CORE AND GET OUT AS MUCH THAT WAY AS POSSIBLE. other then that you could air it up several times each time removing the core to blow it out. I don't think there is another way. How did you get water in it w/o busting the bead to begin with?

you can pop the bead off your self if you have a nother truck ....put a 2x6 or better on the bead ( with out air in the tire) and drive up on it ... and poof the bead will pop off th rim..... its still going to suck gettin water out I would try the other way posted first and then use this and put towels in the open bead,then reair up the tire ... make sure you mark the stem and whgts in case they move

Try hooking it up to a vacuum source. Water will boil in a vacuum and evaporate. You can run a hose off your engine or use an old ac or refrigerator compressor as a vacuum source. It may take a while though if there is a lot of water.

I have no idea how or why there is water in the tires...I bought them from a guy on this site and when I got them home I noticed 3 of the 5 tires sloshing when I dropped them off my tailgate. Weird.

I'll try the valve stem method.

The water may have got in there from just airing up the tire from big air that didn't a water trap.

water in your tires puts more weight and lowers your
center of gravity. that why tractors and farm equipment put water instead of air in their tires. r/c rock crawlers put bb's or lead shot.

Just pop that bead and use a shop vac. Let them dry in the sun for a day to let any remaining moisture evaporate. Otherwise, you will never get it all out, if that is your goal.
