How to Refill Riding Lawn Mower Tire That Fell Off Rim


so if you get a flat tire with your
riding mower the problem is you probably have to drive back to your garage on it
and by that time it’s not just flat but it’s also off the bead I have that
problem here I got a flat tire and on the inside I can push the tire and
there’s no seal there’s a big gap so if I just tried to fill this back up with
my air compressor the air would just come out you have to compress that
tighter and seal the bead on the side now one way to do it is get a ratchet
strap and wrap it around and just crank down on that ratchet strap to push the
tire off but you can also do it with a string and a metal bar and I’ll show you
how to wrap it right now one more thing I forgot to mention you have to jack it
up with a car jack to get it off the ground to be able to do this because
you’re gonna wrap rope around this tire and it needs to be up in the air so Jack
it up in the air first so here’s the tire and it’s pretty tight on this side
but on the inside you can see there’s a huge gap on the rim so what you need is
a piece of rope put a loop in one end wrap it around put it through the loop
but before you pull it tight put a bar through and twist it once then you
continue to wrap it and wrap it around the bar a couple more times locking it
in now what you’re gonna do is twist this and some more and you’re pushing
you gotta hold the rope tight you’re pushing that bead pushing the tire down
and pushing it out on the sides sealing it on that B so now I can feel it’s
tight on this backside now we can fill it up with our air compressor there we go I didn’t have it I didn’t
have it seal them the and these only need about 15 psi of air okay these only
need about 15 psi of air not very much and this is a really old tire you can
see there’s no tread left on it so I’m gonna only fill it up to 10 psi which is
right there and there it is as good as hopefully may I was gonna say good as
new but hopefully it’ll make it one more year so that’s it really quick and easy
the tough part is getting that seal around the the edge of the tire and the
rim and you got to do that by squeezing it somehow either with a carjack or a
rope and you really have to squeeze it to get that seal or else it won’t
inflate up just leak out the side but hopefully that trick trick helps Thanks well I hope you liked the video you just
