Tire Rim Matching and Inflation
Unmatched tires and rims can cause ride disturbance even when perfectly balanced.
|1. The high spot of the tire should be aligned to
the lowest position on the rim to minimize runout
and radial force eccentricity.
|2. Lubricate tire and rim. Grasp tire shoulder
with upper and lower rollers.
|3. Rotate wheel counterclockwise. Continue to
increase roller pressure until tire stalls and rim index
and tire index are aligned.
|4. Dial in and preset the desired inflation
| DANGER: If tire beads do not seat
below 40 psi, relubricate and retry.
Tires requiring more than 40 psi MUST be placed in an inflation cage.
|5. Inflate tire and balance dynamically.|
