Tire Installation

Inspect the rim and tire, and replace them if necessary.
Install the tube.
Apply a soap and water solution, or rubber lubricant to the rim flange
and tire beads.
Position the tire on the rim so that the valve [A] is at the tire balance
mark [B] (the chalk mark made during removal, or the yellow paint
mark on a new tire. see Tire Removal).
Insert the valve stem into the rim, and screw the nut on loosely.
Fit the rim protectors and use tire irons to install the tire bead.
To prevent rim damage, be sure to place the rim protectors at any
place the tire irons are applied.
Pry one side of the tire back onto the rim. Fit the bead protector into
the tire.
Pry the other side of the tire onto the rim, starting at the side opposite
the valve.
Take care not to insert the tire irons so deeply that the tube is
damaged.
Install the other side of the tire bead onto the rim in the same manner.
Check that the tube is not pinched between the tire and rim.
Tighten the bead protector nut and valve stem nut, and put on the
valve cap.
Check and adjust the air pressure after installing.
