So if I remove the core completely from a tire this big without letting it slowing bleed out, the volume of air that will come out the stem won't be so great as to pop the core out like a missile? Will I have trouble handling the core with the volume of air that's coming out of the stem? ...either taking it out or trying to insert the new one?

From what I remember when I changed the core in a car tire, the volume of air was manageable enough in order to get the old one out and the new one quickly in. I'm on the fence in trying to decide whether to do this myself or let a tire shop do it. I suppose anything goes wrong (or if the bead does unseat itself), I will essentially be calling for road service to come out to my site and fix things.

My tire size does end in 22.5 so according to sknight, there's more a chance that I'll unseat the bead if I can't get the new core in before the tire goes flat?

Thanks, I sure appreciate all of you taking the time to reply.
wear safety glasses if you do this yourself. you do not want to be wearing the valve core in your eye. i have changed the valve cores on aircraft tires with over 200 psi in them. it is not hard to do.
