Frequently Asked Questions - Tire Changers
What is the best tire changer?
One of the most popular and best tire changers on the market today is the Atlas® TC221 Elec/Pneumatic Wheel Clamp Tire Changer.
Can you replace tires yourself?
As an experienced and certified tech, it's relatively easy to replace tires yourself. As a hobbyist, it is possible to install your own, but you will need the right equipment and the know-how. We strongly recommend getting the right tools and knowing what you are doing so installing your tires does not turn into a dangerous disaster.
How much does mounting and balancing tires cost?
Tire mounting and balancing are usually charted per tire on average. For balancing a tire, you will probably be looking at anything between $10 to $30 per tire. Mounting tires see a range of $15 to $30 per tire as well.
How do you get a tight tire on a rim?
You could install a tire on a rim yourself to save some time and money, but we strongly urge hobbyists new to car maintenance to seek out the professionals.
- Place the rim flat on the ground with the front side facing up.
- Lubricate the beads of the tire with dish detergent and lay the tire on the rim. The beads of the tire are the inside edges, around the hole.
- Work the back (or bottom) bead of the tire open by pushing or standing on the side of the tire. Locking a pair of vise grips onto the edge of the rim can help in installing or uninstalling the bead by keeping the tire separated from the rim.
- Slide a screwdriver or pry bar between the bead of the tire and the rim and pull back, sliding the bead over the rim. Do this in short spaces, working two or three inches at a time.
- Use the same procedure to install the other side (or another bead) of the tire.
- Inflate the tire after.
Can you balance your own tires?
Take note that tire manufacturers won't replace your tires if they are out of balance if you have been using them for some time. If your tires are out of balance the first time you mount them, it is our strong recommendation that it is better to contact the manufacturer.
You can balance your own tires, but the proper tools to balance them are expensive. A tire technician or mechanic with access to a tire balancer would be your best bet to ensure proper and safe tire balancing.
