Is there a special tool to remove what labled as the tire bolt?

This is not very useful.
It tells you how to change the WHEEL. Not the TIRE.
And changing the wheel is always described in the instruction manual for the vehicle.

Probably im just disapointed because of the misguiding headline on this "how to". It would be really nice with a guide to how to change a tire yourself without beeing charged a lot of money in a tireshop

My 03 F-150 got two flats (within a few days of each other) on a trip to New Mexico last year, and because until 2 months ago it had been in Minnesota, the wheel was so rusted on to the axle that we couldn't get it off. We took it to sears, and they still couldn't get it of. Eventually we found a small local shop that could. To cut a long story short - Rotate your tires regularly, or they will get stuck on. And also get yourself a real, long jack, the one provided only works on level pavement.
