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).
Install the tire bead over the rim flange using a commer-
cially available tire changer.
Lubricate the tire beads and rim flanges with a soap and
water solution or rubber lubricant to help seat the tire
beads in the sealing surfaces of the rim while inflating the
Center the rim in the tire beads, and inflate the tire with
compressed air until the tire beads seat in the sealing
Be sure to install the valve core whenever inflating
the tire, and do not inflate the tire to more than 400
kPa (4.0 kg/cm², 57 psi). Overinflation can explode
the tire with possibility of injury and loss of life.
Check to see that the bead lines [A] on both sides of the
tire sidewalls are parallel with the rim flanges.
If the rim flanges and tire sidewall bead lines are not par-
allel, remove the valve core.
Lubricate the rim flanges and tire beads.
Install the valve core and inflate the tire again.
After the tire beads seat in the rim flanges, check for air
Inflate the tire slightly above standard inflation.
Use a soap and water solution or submerge the tire, and
check for bubbles that would indicate leakage.
Adjust the air pressure to the specified pressure (see Tire
Install the brake disc [A] so that the marked side [B] faces
Apply a non-permanent locking agent, and tighten the
brake disc bolts [C].

Adjust the wheel balance.
Check and balance the wheel when a tire is replaced
with a new one. New tires are slippery and may
cause loss of control and injury. A break-in period
of 160 km (100 mile) is necessary to establish nor-
mal tire traction. During break-in, avoid sudden and
maximum braking and acceleration, and hard cor-
