**We also have videos for replacing tires on youtube. **

Electric scooters have become increasingly popular in recent years for their environmentally friendly design, compact size, and ease of use. As with any vehicle, electric scooter tires will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. If you find yourself in need of a tire change but don't want to spend extra money on a professional service, not to worry – you can do it yourself! In this step-by-step guide, we will teach you how to change an electric scooter tire with ease.

Step 1: Gather the necessary tools
To change your electric scooter tire, you will need:

  • A new tire (make sure it's the correct size for your scooter)

  • A set of tire levers

  • A wrench and/or Allen wrench set (check your scooter's manual for the specific size needed)

  • A pump or air compressor

  • A bucket or other container for deflating the tire (optional)

Step 2: Remove the wheel
First, turn off your scooter and ensure it's parked on a stable, flat surface. Using the wrench or Allen wrench, carefully remove the nuts and/or bolts that hold the wheel in place. Note the order and location of each component, as this will help when it's time to reassemble later. Remove the wheel from the scooter.

Step 3: Deflate the tire
Before removing the old tire from the wheel, you'll need to deflate it. Place the valve into the bucket or container (to catch any remaining air or debris). Use the tire levers to press the valve, allowing the air to escape.

Step 4: Remove the old tire
Using the tire levers, carefully pry the tire away from the wheel rim until it is completely separated. Be cautious not to damage the rim or puncture the tire in the process.

Step 5: Install the new tire
Place the new tire onto the wheel rim and use the tire levers to guide it into position. Ensure the tire is evenly seated on the rim and not twisted or pinched.

Step 6: Inflate the new tire
Using the pump or air compressor, inflate the tire to the manufacturer's recommended pressure (found in your scooter's manual or on the tire wall). Be sure not to overinflate, as this can cause damage to the tire.

Step 7: Reinstall the wheel
Place the wheel back onto the scooter, ensuring the components are in the correct order and position. Tighten the nuts and/or bolts with the wrench or Allen wrench, ensuring they are secure but not overtightened.

Step 8: Give it a test ride
Turn your scooter back on and take it for a short test ride to ensure the tire is properly seated and the scooter performs as it should. You're now ready to hit the road with your freshly changed electric scooter tire!

With this step-by-step guide, changing an electric scooter tire can be a simple and cost-effective process. Keep your scooter running smoothly and safely by checking tire condition regularly and replacing as needed.
