Tire - Front - LH (Dismount and Mount)

Correction code 3402100234021002
Warning:

Always read and understand the tire equipment operator’s manual before operating the tire changer.

Note:

These instructions are based on the Hunter TC3900 tire changer. Some steps might be different for other tire changers. Refer to the operator's manual for specific information.

Dismount

  1. Remove the wheel. See Wheel (Remove and Install).
  2. Place the wheel on the tire changer, with the front of the wheel facing up.
  3. Insert the center clamp.
  4. Tighten the cone on the center clamp.
  5. Remove the valve core, and allow the tire to deflate.
  6. Position the upper bead roller at the edge of the rim.
  7. Rotate the tire to loosen the upper bead. Lubricate the bead as the tire rotates.
    Note: The TPMS sensor is close to the rim. Do not damage the TPMS sensor when loosening the upper bead.
  8. Position the lower bead roller at the edge of the rim.
  9. Rotate the tire to loosen the lower bead. Lubricate the bead as the tire rotates.
  10. Position the mount head at the edge of the rim, then lift the mount head to hook the upper bead.
  11. Rotate the tire to pull the upper bead above the rim. Lubricate the bead as the tire rotates.
  12. Use the lower bead roller to lift the tire off of the rim.
1Remove the wheel. See Wheel (Remove and Install).
2Place the wheel on the tire changer, with the front of the wheel facing up.
3Insert the center clamp.
4Tighten the cone on the center clamp.

9Rotate the tire to loosen the lower bead. Lubricate the bead as the tire rotates.
10Position the mount head at the edge of the rim, then lift the mount head to hook the upper bead.
11Rotate the tire to pull the upper bead above the rim. Lubricate the bead as the tire rotates.
12Use the lower bead roller to lift the tire off of the rim.

Mount

  1. Thoroughly lubricate both sides of the beads of the new tire.
  2. If the tire has "outside", "side facing outwards", or a direction of rotation arrow on the sidewall, make sure that the tire is oriented properly.
  3. Push the lower bead of the tire over the rim by hand.
  4. Position the mount head on the upper bead.
  5. Use the bead press arm to push down on the sidewall.
  6. Slowly rotate the tire to push the upper bead below the rim.
  7. Attach the air chuck to the valve stem.
  8. Use the foot pedal to inflate the tire to approximately 40 PSI (275 kPa) and seat the beads.
    Warning:

    The pressure gauge shows accurate pressure when the pedal is released. Repeatedly press and release the pedal to avoid overinflation.

    Warning:

    Do not exceed the pressure indicated on the tire sidewall.

  9. Remove the air chuck from the valve stem, then install the valve core.
  10. Set the tire pressure according to the wheel size.
    Note: Use the tire sticker values displayed on the door jam. If unavailable, use these values:
    • 18 inch wheels - 42 psi
    • 19 inch wheels - 42 psi
  11. Balance the tire. See Tire - Front - LH (Rebalance).
