Help with 1st tire change please
I want to flip my tires because the outsides are treadless at this point. Can I get some instruction on how to go about it?
I presume I will use my new axle jack to lift the wheel after removing the pants.
I am guessing the brake is on the inboard side of the wheel, on its own disk, separate from the wheel (but I might be wrong).
Take off the castle nut (should be loosened on the ground first).
Pull the wheel and deflate.
I planned to use a large screwdriver to pop the tire over the rim lip and work my way around. Repeat for the other wall.
Flip the tire and reverse the process.
Is there anything I am missing, any trouble spots, any grease or maintenance that needs doing, some critical torque spec on the castle nut?
