Discovering the right method for your specific scooter model Discovering the right method for your specific scooter model is vital, but most electric scooters follow a similar tire replacement process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you tackle the task with confidence.


  • New electric scooter tire(s)

  • Screwdrivers (Phillips and/or flathead)

  • Allen wrenches or hex keys

  • Tire levers or a flat tool

  • A pump (for pneumatic tires)

Step 1: Scooter Preparation

Safety first – ensure your electric scooter is turned off and fully disconnected from any power source. Lay it down on a stable, well-lit surface area.

Step 2: Wheel Removal

Locate and unscrew the bolts or fasteners that hold the wheel in place using the appropriate screwdriver or Allen wrench. Carefully remove the wheel from the scooter frame.

Step 3: Tire Deflation

If you’re changing a pneumatic tire, fully deflate it before proceeding. For solid tires, skip to the next step.

Step 4: Tire Removal

Insert the flat edge of your tire lever under the tire's edge and work it around the rim to pry the tire off. It may be helpful to use soapy water along the edge for lubrication.

Step 5: Installing the New Tire

Place one side of the new tire onto the rim, then work the other side on, using the tire levers if necessary. Ensure the tire is seated evenly around the rim.

Step 6: Inflation

For pneumatic tires, use your pump to inflate the new tire to the recommended pressure level.

Step 7: Wheel Reinstallation

Replace the wheel back into the scooter's frame, careful to align it properly. Re-tighten the bolts or fasteners securely.

Step 8: Testing

Before hopping back on, do a quick check to make sure everything is firm and secure. Give the scooter a gentle test ride to ensure the new tire is functioning correctly.

Replacing an electric scooter tire can seem daunting, but with the right tools and a little patience, it’s a wholly manageable DIY task. Regular tire maintenance and timely replacements will keep your ride safe and enjoyable.
