Electric scooters have become a popular mode of transportation in urban areas, and Xiaomi's Mi Electric Scooter is no exception. Being able to navigate smoothly on various terrains is an essential feature that makes the ride enjoyable and hassle-free. However, tires wear out over time and may require replacement. In this article, we will guide you through the simple steps on how to change the tire of your Mi electric scooter.

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Tools
To replace the tire on your Mi electric scooter, you will need the following tools:

  • A wrench set (preferably a 10mm, 15mm, and 18mm)

  • A flathead screwdriver

  • A pair of pliers

Step 2: Prepare Your Scooter
Before getting started, ensure that your scooter is clean and free of dirt. Turn off the scooter and carefully lay it on its side, with the wheel you need to change facing upwards. We would advise placing a soft surface, like a towel, beneath the wheel to avoid any scratches.

Step 3: Remove the Wheel
To remove the wheel, you will need to release the nuts that hold it in place. Use your 18mm wrench to loosen the large nut on the axle. Then, use a 15mm wrench to hold the other side. Once the nuts are removed, gently pull the wheel away from the scooter.

Step 4: Remove the Tire from the Wheel
Now that you have removed the wheel, you can begin taking off the old tire. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the tire's bead off the rim. Work your way around the rim, using the screwdriver to lift the tire out. Be cautious not to damage the rim in the process.

Step 5: Install the New Tire
Once you have successfully removed the old tire, it's time to install the new one. Start by applying some lubricant (soap and water mixture works) to the new tire's bead. This will make installation easier. Place one side of the tire onto the rim and use your hands to press it down, ensuring it is seated correctly. Now, use your flathead screwdriver to pry the other side of the tire onto the rim, working your way around as before.

Step 6: Inflate the New Tire
With the new tire in place, connect your air pump to the valve and inflate it to the recommended pressure (usually about 45-50 PSI). Make sure the tire is correctly seated on the rim, with no bulges or gaps.

Step 7: Reattach the Wheel
Position the wheel back onto the scooter, making sure to align the holes for the screws. Secure the wheel by reinstalling the nuts using your wrench set. Remember to hold the opposite side with a wrench to keep it in place.

Step 8: Test Your Scooter
Now that your new tire is installed, it's time to test it out. Turn your scooter back on and take it for a short ride, ensuring that it rides smoothly and is responsive to braking.

So there you have it – the complete guide on how to change the tire on your Mi electric scooter. With proper maintenance and care, you'll keep your scooter running smoothly for years to come.
