You would want to leave the pinch bolts tight while removing and tightning the axle.

1.) Remove brake calipers
2.) Loosen the axle nut
3.) Loosen the pinch bolts
4.) Use the end of screw-driver to puch the axle thru
5.) Change tire and repeat above in reverse order
6.) After I have the axle nut tight I loosen the pinch bolts again in case the axle is bound up at all. I then tighten everything to proper torque specs

Like someone else has mentioned just use the pinch bolts properly and you'll be fine.
