If you're a Xiaomi M365 electric scooter user, you're probably well aware of the comfort and convenience it offers for your daily commute or leisure rides. However, dealing with punctures and maintaining air pressure levels can often be a hassle. That's where making the switch to solid tires can be a game-changer.

Solid tires, also known as airless tires, offer numerous advantages, including eliminating the risk of flats and reducing maintenance tasks. This article will guide you through the steps to replace your Xiaomi M365's pneumatic tires with solid ones, ensuring a smooth and puncture-free ride.

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • New solid tires compatible with the Xiaomi M365

  • Flat-head and Philips screwdrivers

  • Adjustable wrench

  • Lubricant (such as soapy water or a silicone spray)

  • Clamp or vice (optional)

  • Utility knife or edge trimmer (for trimming, if necessary)

Step 1: Wheel Removal
Begin by turning off your scooter and placing it in an upside-down position for stability. Remove the plastic caps and unscrew the nuts using an adjustable wrench. Gently slide out the wheel from the fork or the motor housing.

Step 2: Removing the Old Tire
To remove the old pneumatic tire, start by deflating it completely. Once deflated, use your screwdrivers to pry open the tire from the rim. This step might require patience and a bit of force.

Step 3: Preparing the Rim
Inspect the rim for any debris or damage. Clean the rim thoroughly to ensure the solid tire fits snugly. It's essential to have a clean surface for the tire's installation.

Step 4: Installing the Solid Tire
Solid tires can be quite stiff, making the installation process the most challenging part. Liberally apply a lubricant to the edges of the tire and the rim. This lubrication is crucial for easing the tire onto the rim. Begin by pressing one side of the tire onto the rim. You may need to use a clamp or vice to help push the tire onto the rim steadily.

Step 5: Adjustments and Fitting
Once the tire is halfway onto the rim, the rest becomes a matter of applying even pressure and working the tire on bit by bit. If the tire seems especially tight, gentle heat application might make it more pliable. Please do this with caution to avoid melting the tire or damaging the rim. Use an edge trimmer or utility knife to remove any excess material from the tire installation.

Step 6: Reattach the Wheel
After the tire is securely in place, reattach the wheel to the fork or the motor housing. Replace the nuts and tighten them securely. Ensure you reattach any wires or brakes disconnected during the removal process.

Step 7: Perform a Safety Check
Before taking your Xiaomi M365 out for a spin, it is essential to perform a safety check. Ensure that the wheel is attached securely and that there is no movement in the rim indicating a loose installation.

Congratulations, you've successfully installed solid tires on your Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter! Enjoy your rides without the worry of punctures slowing you down.

Remember to refer back to the manual of your scooter for any specific instructions or precautions, and always prioritize safety when performing maintenance on your electric scooter.
