1) Lubrication of Tire Rim and Bead
- Use a soft-bristled brush to spread the lubricant over the surface.
- Use specific lubricants for tire mounting only.
- Do not use silicone or other solvent-based substances.
2) Bead Positioning
- Place the tire bead on the rim channel.
- Make sure that at least part of the tire bead stays within the rim profile.
- The tire remains in position due to its weight and the ground contact during rim rotation.
- Start rotating the tire and position the tire bead gradually on the rim.
- Complete the rotation until the entire bead is positioned on the rim.
- Make sure that the entire bead is correctly fitted within the rim.
3) Final Check
- Check that both tire beads are correctly positioned on the rim.
- Adjust the tire pressure according to manufacturer recommendations and the intended operating conditions.
