With a good machine it's not that bad, the width isn't nearly as big a deal as how short the sidewall is, I wouldn't want to take a 285/30-18 off an 8.5" wheel without a helper but a 285/35-18 isn't too bad, and depends on the tire too. The old BFG R1's sold in the late 90's had SUPER stiff beads and from what I hear the new ones do too, so it's a bastard to get the bead seated and unseated
