As long as they are not low profile tyres, you should be able to get a pry bar in there to pop the tyre over the lip of the rim - especially if youre not bothered about scratching the wheels.

...Ive done it this way in the past (at a race meet where we got a puncture and needed to swap a tyre) we even didnt damage the rim by using rags in the "pry" areas smile

Two crowbars. Use washing up liquid to help slip them off.

Use your brain willo.
Goto terry on the dock road and if the tyres are any good tell him he can keep em if he takes em off free.

Make sure you remove the valves too or they won't take them.
