Thumb Mount a Motorcycle Tire Without Using Tools

Companion tire dismount thread:

No tire irons. Amaze your friends. Do the job with lashing straps.

8 straps are needed. 99 cents each at Harbor Freight.

Strap the tire so the beads are touching.

Place the tire onto the wheel. Notice the gap between the bead and wheel at the 6 o'clock position.

First thing to do is push the bead against the wheel at the 6 o'clock position.

Push the tire over the wheel lip with hand pressure. Push just ahead of where the bead crosses the wheel lip.

Halfway on.



Hey... Have you noticed? No tire lube.

One last push and...

Pretty cool eh? No tire irons. Only your hands.
