you could possibly do it,
but not if you respect your rims.

Yes it can be done,but by 'eck,what a load of hassle.Idealy you need a bead breaker to get the old tyre off.A compressor would be good too,then there is the balancing,...........aah fuggit,take them down to the tyre fitters.25 does'nt sound too bad.
