How to Put on New Bike Tire & Tube | Bicycle Repair

And a lot of tires have treads on them, so
you want to make sure that the tread is going the correct way. Basically if you see, you have gears in the
back, basically what would have to happen is the tread would have to go with the wheel
so you could see it would go this way. And a lot of the time what we like to do is
we like to put the actual label right where the valve is. So if you do have a flat and you pump up your
tube, you can see exactly where the hole would be. It makes it a lot easier for fixing flats. So you just put the one side on and then you’re
gonna get your tube and make sure that you pump up the tube slightly just so it becomes
round so it’s easier to put inside the tire and also so you don’t pinch it when you’re
putting on the other side. And you start with the valve here, put the
valve in, pull the tire over the tube, and start pushing the tube inside the tire and
the rim. So once you get it inside the tire and the
rim, what you’re gonna do is you’re going to push the other side of the tire, the sidewall
of the tire, on the actual rim. So you’re going to start at the valve, you’re
going to start opposite where you took if off and basically use the back of your hand
to push the tire on, making sure that you’re not pinching the tube. So you want to make sure that the tube isn’t
hanging out here ’cause it’ll actually pinch, it’s like a pinch flat, and then you’ll have
to replace the tube. So you kind of just want to go all the way
around holding the tire. Sometimes it gets a little difficult like
right at the end here, so you can take a tire lever, make sure that you’re not pinching
the tube, use it backwards. So instead of using it this way like taking
off the tire, you turn it upside down and you just hook the tire up on to the rim. Once the tire is on the rim, you want to make
sure that you start inflating it. Well, before you do that make sure that the
tire is seated properly, so basically what that means is there’s a seam that runs around
most tires that should be even all the way around on both sides. If it’s not then it can cause a blowout which
is never good. So as you pump up the tire make sure you keep
on looking at the seam to make sure that it’s seating properly and make sure that you’re
keeping an eye on your gauge to see what pressure it’s at. Every tire is a little different. It will actually say on the sidewall of the
tire. This tire says ‘Maximum inflation pressure
– 65psi’, so I wanna make that I do somewhere around 65 psi. So once you get up the pressure make sure
that you remember to tighten down that screw if it’s a Presta valve. If it’s a Schrader valve make sure to put
the cap on it because it prevents dirt from getting into the valve. And that’s how to replace a tire.

  1. Thanks …. ive never done that coz i saw a man pumping his tire with pressure then he didn't noticed that his tube was coming out then BOOM!!! …. so ive never done this w/o my father before….and im too lazy to buy a new one at the shop if it's flat  .. so now thanks to you !

  2. yo i have a 20 inch bmx bike and the tire that came with it is 20×1.75/2.125 but i bought a 20×1.75/2.25 and its to big can u make a video about it or comment back please

  3. ever wonder why tires easily gets holes? because they arent thick enough the reason why they wont thicken it because the company wants u to get ur tires flat and then buy new ones everyday.

  4. If you're losing tires every day you should probably check inside your tire for any glass that might have gotten inside it.  Or maybe you should rewatch the video to make sure you're actually installing it correctly.

  5. Feb 20TH 2016 Video makers; also a lesson to be learned: My compliments, simple, understandable, easy to follow verbal & demonstrated instructions. Some persons making video's could take a lesson from you, no matter what their video is about. thanks, Bruce @79 yrs young.

  6. This saved my day! Putting the inflated tube back in with one side of tyre was so easy following your steps

  7. I can't tell which direction the treads go or which direction the wheel goes in the beginning of the video- that didn't make any sense.

  8. There's a number of variables involved in mounting a tire onto a rim. This video is fine for a broken-in tire that's got a wire bead. Mounting a new folding bead tire onto a road rim is a whole different ballgame. And in contrast to the opinion of one poster, using a tire iron is not idiotic. In some cases, there is simply no other choice.

    And when you're using folding bead road tires, it's best not to use them when they're "green". Fixing a flat with one of these beasts along the roadside is not for the meek of heart because a green tire is harder to remove than it is to mount it. I always mount new tires on a spare set of wheels and leave them on for a couple of weeks. I pump them up to 120-130 PSI and during the time they're on the spare wheels, the bead will stretch making subsequent mountings much easier..

  9. Thank you very much! You explained the process very well and to the point that I got my tire on immediately after trying for over 20 minutes prior.

  10. Thanks for the video but you also remind me of every pretentious douchebag in the bicycle community

  11. Thanks! I just soaked all my clothes in sweat, then watched this. I was always doing it bass-ackwards. I'm sure I'll need a refresher next time. You've been bookmarked!

  12. Great video. If anyone is having issues try adjusting the pressure in the tube, it can make it easy or hard getting the tire on the last bit. I am also glad I got that little plastic tool, super helpful at the end.

  13. Before watching this video it took me over half an hour to change an inner tube and I managed to burst it. After watching your video I changed the inner tube in two minutes! Thanks for a very straight forward and to the point demo.

  14. It feels good when you've finished all this process and then suddenly…."Kabooommm"
    the tube just explode…..!

  15. Great video. First time replacing the tire on my bike I was about to return the tube and tire to the store but after seeing your video my bike is ready to roll again 👍

  16. Thank you, battling putting the spare tire on, watched this and did it in seconds! Great video!!!

  17. My tire and rim both have a label that say 26×2.5 and when I got to put the tire on it’s way too big for the rim. Ik it fits cause I took it off but now it’s like double the size.

  18. HEY BRANDON, thanks 4 the vid. Helped me and pal out immensely. We tried to follow your steps but we found the tyre we bought was too small. All good, we used it to make a quiet elaborate decorative chandelier. It's not a great chandelier but it does the job of hiding the ceiling fan that acted as a dark reminder of Robin Williams demise. Oh well guess if we lose Robin Williams but gain a rubber chandelier it isn't too bad.

  19. As soon as I get a car I'm just gonna grab a sledge hammer and smash my bike with it until it turns into dust.
