Is it your first time facing a flat/punctured bike tyre? Worry not! The process of changing bike tyres is a pretty simple one. Your bike will be up and running in no time with a few simple steps and tools.

Moreover, you can change your bike’s tyres even if you don’t have expert knowledge of vehicles. This article will detail everything you need to follow while changing your bike’s tyres. So, scroll down and learn how to change bike tyres to escape tricky situations!

Don’t Change Both Tyres Simultaneously

One of the things that most bike owners are not aware of is that you should change both tires simultaneously. In other words, you should change both bike tyres simultaneously to have even tread.

The wear rate on the bike’s front wheels is typically lesser than the rear ones. However, if the front wheels have a visible injury, we recommend changing the front ones too. Also, keep in mind that the front tyres last much longer.

Removing the Tyres

You should start the process by removing the wheels. Keep the bike upright and shift the drivetrain into the hardest gear if it’s rear-wheel flat. If the bike has rim brakes, you’ll need to loosen them. Open the quick release to remove the wheel of the bike.

Find the Source of the Problem

The next thing to do is to find the source of the problem. There might be a thorn, sharp object, or a piece of glass that has injured your bike’s tyres and is still probably there.

You should carefully run your fingers along with the bike’s tyres and check for any remains. This step is to prevent your bike tyres from getting another flat. If your bike tyre has tubes, pump air into it to find the damaged area.

Fix the Problem

You can use a patch kit to fix any injury or holes in your bike’s tyres. If the damage is beyond repair, you can buy and equip your bike with new tyres. If you are fixing the existing tyres, clean the punctured area with a rough cloth. The glue in the patch kit will seal the damaged area.

Install the Tube

The last thing to do is to inflate your patched or new bike tube to allow it to hold its shape. You’ll need to put some effort to place the tyres back onto the rim. Avoid using levers to work back the tyres as they might accidentally puncture the tubes again.
