Do not lay the wheel on the ground with the disc
facing down. This can damage or warp the disc.
Place blocks under the wheel so that the disc does
not touch the ground.
Remove the wheel.

tion on the tire with chalk so that the tire can be reinstalled
in the same position.
Take out the valve core [B] to let out the air.
When handling the rim, be careful not to damage the rim

a soap and water solution or rubber lubricant. This helps
the tire beads slip off the rim flanges.
Never lubricate with engine oil or petroleum distil-
lates because they will deteriorate the tire.
Break the beads away from both sides of the rim with the
bead breaker [A].
