If you have successfully removed the wheel, You should be able to remove the tire, from the wheel, simply with a flat headed bar, or two.
Deflate the tire, then apply pressure, to break the bead.
Then insert the first bar to lever the tire over the edge.
Carefully repeat the process, and there you go.
Happy mowering:)

Mtd removing rear wheels from axel

Be very carefull, if you pull the wheels hard enough the half shaft will pop the circlip on the inside of the gearbox and come away with the wheel, this will then require a gearbox strip down, leave it soaking in penetrating oil and try again.

I have a roper riding mower that needs a new rear tire, the wheel has no lug nuts, is there some kind of trick to release the wheel?

The wheels are not designed for easy removal. You have to pop off the hub cap, remove a retaining ring (which is easier with a special tool), and then pull off the wheel (which may require a special puller tool). So don't do it. Jack up the tractor and you can remove and replace a tire on the rim without taking the wheel off.
Good luck! If this is helpful, please rate my answer, thanks!

How do I remove the square key from the left rear tire of my Craftsman riding mower model #917270410. I am unable to get any type of vice grips or needle nose on it? Is a wheel puller required to remove...

In theory, the wheel simply slides off after removng the retainer.

If yours won't shift after soaking in WD40 or similar, you will need some sort of puller.

Some craftsman wheels have holes drilled in them for this purpose. If yours don't, you will need to drill some.

DO NOT attempt to hammer the wheel off. You might get away with it, but there is a fair chance that the axle shaft will come out of the transmission. If that happens, the transmission will need to be removed and completely torn down to fix.

If it really won't shift, destroy the wheel and cut it off. It's a pain, but cheaper than a new trans. You can (just about) get the tire off with the wheel still on the tractor.

Use copper-based grease on the axle when re-fitting, to prevent it happening again. I always remove the wheels once a year - just to ensure that I can if I need to!
