Rear tire change and brakes

I previously removed the rear wheel to check the spline (happily, it was well greased). When I did it I kept the brakes together. Now I want to pull the wheel to change the tire. Should I remove the brakes before taking the rim to have the tire installed?

Yes, remove the rear brake before bringing it to the shop. The shop will need it removed to install and balance the tire. The brake assembly should pop off once the wheel is removed.

I also duct tape over the final drive side of the wheel so they don't get **** in my splines and moly.

I have a shelf for sprays, greases, etc. labeled "won't move", and next to it is a shelf of tape, glues, RTV, etc. labeled "Won't Stay / Doc Tape".
