If it is a tube tire use old large screwdrivers as tire irons and make sure they are sharp. I'm here to help, buddy.

For setting the bead, you shouldn’t hold the tire, and until the bead pops into the set position, look away. I’ve been working on tires for cars for about 2 months and everyone at my work tells me to do that. Or wear safety goggles

Heres a tip : Pay 25$ to have it professionally mounted because FYI some ( mostly supersport) tires are 'required' to be mounted by the machine, as the clearances & thresholds are too tight for basic hand tools & you risk 746,673,527 things going wrong doing it yourself.. stretching/breaking the bead/lip/seal etc.. scratching your rim/rotor, the list goes on... its 25$ people.. if you cant afford 25$ (50$ for both) every 6 months to 3 YEARS (Depending how frequent & how hard you ride), then maybe you shouldnt own the bike (no offense).. its just one of those Moto DIYs where the cons severely outweigh the Pros.. and your gonna spend 50-100$ anyway on all the bs tools you need.. for what? To have them 2 years down the road? Hats off to your cleverness 😂 Anyway enough bashing, its always good to atleast know how or maybe attempt it 1 time on a junk tire/rim just for knowledge purposes, and for that, this video gets a 👍

Do NOT use ether to "explode" the bead into place, unless you don't mind being on the next hold-my-beer YT video. Just wrap the tire with a ratchet strap and tighten. That will expand the beads against the rim, then inflate.

Use a small plastic barrel (with it's top cut out) to put rim and tire on, easier standing up. A rubber head mallet can ease installation or removal of tire also. Use dish washing soap and water, it much more slippery than Windex. Wrong rim protectors, they shouldn't pop off.

He makes it look soo simple! I just removed and put the wheel back on by myself and I was trembling and thirsty after lifting the wheel with one hand and trying to slide the axle nut in!, I had a shop do the tire mounting and unmounting, but definitely thinking of doing it my self next time.

Holy hell, Ari. I know you're a buff dude but you must be strong as hell to do this so easily! I've been trying to do my rear tire for the last couple hours following this guide and you made it look way too easy! I'm hoping that some sucker will buy these tools off Craigslist and give this a try. This is probably my first and last time doing this. What a huge waste of time and I can't even get the last few inches over. If anything, it looks like I'm ruining the tire. Definitely gonna let a shop do this rather than wasting half my day.

holy crud this mofo had his hands close to the beads of the tire when he inflated it and the pops happened. Idk if bike tires are the same as car tires when it comes to this, but doing that on a car tire is a good way of losing a few fingers.

Another quick hint...seek out the heaviest part of your wheel on a balance stand BEFORE you mount the tire. sometimes the lightest part of the wheel, isn't always where the valve stem goes. I've learned the hard way, way too many times, when I've made this assumption. AND, always replace your valve stem, at least every other tire change. (they aren't made like they once were)

the hair dryer tip was really good. Kept forgetting to put soap and water which made it harder on myself than it had to be. Unfortunately, there was some road debris I didn't see while splitting traffic not 2 weeks later and I got a pretty catastropic puncture. Ended up bringing the rim in to a cyclegear and having them mount a new tire since I didn't have the luxury of waiting for a new tire from ebay before work the next monday. I'll definitely order my next pair online and install them again - was easy and the tools pay for themselves with one set of tires.

For breaking bead i just use a simple c clamp with some wood,for the speed i impact it but manual is also np. No need for special tools,also havent needed to warm my tyres either,c clamp works like a charm on car tyres aswell. Also i use som solution on the inner side of rim where bead is as to not get rim leak before mounting new tyre

you scratched the rim several times.....camera angle didn't catch it. Instead sawszall the tire along the tread towards the edges but not all the way so you don't hit the rim. Then use a bolt cutter to cut the steel edge of the tire......rim is untouched and perfect. the tire is in a couple pieces to you can fit it in your trash.....free dump. also you can use level jack stands with a steel rod to balance the tires or even just mount the rim back on the bike to gravity balance it. buy the sawszall and bolt cuttersfrom Homet depot and return them the next day.....tell them you didn't like the color.....tire change cost a couple of bucks for the tire weights.....done.

I would like to add something. Wire brush the bead seats on the wheel before installing the new tire. Rubber and corrosion build up, if not cleaned off, will be a source of slow leaks.

Question- I have a buddy who got his tires replaced at some small shop, came back and his front rotor was rubbing against his calipers in one spot. Local dealership said the dude must’ve pried the tire off with the wheel on the floor, slightly skewing the brake rotor. Wouldn’t it be better to put a couple 2x4’s under the outer parts of the tire rim so that the brake rotor isn’t touching the ground while you’re applying force to the wheel? I’m a newb, about to go through my first tire change, just got quoted $100 per wheel for tire change, considering buying the tools and doing it myself.

I"ve also used a big C-clamp to pop my tire off the bead, big like what you'd use for doing brakes on a car. I was just afraid of bending or dinging up one of my rims and them not sealing perfect. For lube, Dawn dish soap and just a spritz of water happened to work for me. There was a trick in another video where the person left the new tire in the sun, put zip ties around it to pull the beads close to eachother and in one smooth movement, he just put the tire over the bead in one smooth motion, absolutely no trouble at all. To seat the bead, I was having a little trouble. I aired it up to about 30psi, bouncing it on the ground from like 4" off the ground was enough just to give it a little shock and the first seated, then a little more air and a bounce got the second. Like they say, "there's more than one way to skin a cat". It's nice seeing different ways in case you don't have something on hand or something just isn't quite working. Just sharing a couple things, and I'll probably try the zip tie trick above next time. That's the cool thing about the motorcycle community, people share a lot of information openly just for the love of riding.

You don't need to buy rim protectors or that balancing thing. All you need is a few bits of thin cardboard (backing on packaging) to protect the rims and you can use the axle from your wheel and your arms to balance the tyre... the only tools you need are the tyre irons

I use the axel and 2 folding chairs and a 2x4 the 2x4 is to get the right height on a offset axle to balance the wheel for the back , for the front I instal the wheel and do not hook up the caliper balance it on the forks , leave some play on the nut till your done . Dunlop elite 3 are some tuff tires the last 10 inch you have to pry 150 foot pounds to get it over the beed I use 3 spoons .

Im a long time rider, changed many flat tires on the trails out of necessity, im not sure why you would want to undertake street bike wheels at home , i did it once just to prove i could , if you can negotiate well the tire change and balance is a throw in after you haggle the tire price.
