Tyre mounting is installing a tire onto a vehicle’s wheel. This process typically involves removing the old tire, aligning the new tire with the wheel, and then securing the tire onto the wheel using specialized equipment such as a tire machine. The process also includes checking the tire pressure and balance.
Benefits of using tire mounting tools
There are several benefits of using specialized tire mounting tools, including:
Speed and efficiency:
Tyre mounting tools, such as a tire machine, can quickly and efficiently mount a tire onto a wheel, which can save time and increase productivity in a tire shop.
Using specialized tools can help ensure that the tire is mounted correctly and securely onto the wheel, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
Tyre mounting tools can help ensure that the tire is aligned correctly on the wheel and that the tire pressure is correct, which can improve the overall performance and safety of the vehicle.
Using specialized tools can help reduce the risk of damaging the tire or wheel during the mounting process, saving money on costly repairs or replacements.
Tire mounting tools ensure that the same process is followed every time a tire is mounted, resulting in consistent and accurate results.
How tire mounting tools work
Tyre mounting tools, such as a tire machines, typically consist of several components that work together to mount a tire onto a wheel. The process typically involves the following steps:
Removing the old tire:
The first step is to remove the old tire from the wheel. This is typically done by breaking the seal between the tire and the wheel using specialized tools, such as a tire lever or bead breaker.
Aligning the new tire:
The new tire is then aligned with the wheel. This involves positioning the tire on the wheel in the correct orientation and ensuring that the tire’s bead is correctly seated in the wheel’s rim.
Securing the tire:
Once the tire is aligned correctly, it is connected to the wheel using specialized equipment, such as a tire machine. The tire machine uses a combination of air pressure and mechanical force to mount the tire onto the wheel.
Checking the tire pressure and balance:
After the tire is mounted, the tire pressure is checked and adjusted as necessary. The wheel is balanced to ensure stability and will not vibrate while driving.
The final inspection is done to ensure the tire is mounted correctly and balanced and no damages or defects are present in the tire or wheel.
The specific method and components used can vary depending on the type of tire machine or tool being used, but the basic process is generally the same.
