Alright so maybe the tire guy thought the question was about literally mounting a tire on a wheel. They get a pass...for now 👀

Glad this was the first comment, cause I'm watching on a TV that doesnt allow creating comments, and I had to jump on to make sure that was solved. +1 for retrospection. Keep it up boosty boys!

Sorry guys I commented before reading the comments dude was talking about a tire on wheel swap thats not that big a deal on a freightliner or peterbuilt even your 4500 series trucks its not that big a deal i think you call it a double lipped bead but on big rigs tire gets real low. Not flat it just comes of the bead they operate at 100-115 psi Ive seen and I been driving a lazer spot all over a big scrap yard all day when I wasnt in a material handler or my f150 picking up junk cars with a wench trailer

What he said about the sealant and pump is very common these days. Less and less cars have spare wheels these days to reduce weight for emissions targets. If you're lucky there may be a space saver wheel but that is becoming rarer.
roadwarrior Pred mesecem
Jobe is right about the tire guys hating the slime in the tires. Its messy and gets every. Also mounting a tire does not require a lot of strength at all to do

I worked as a tire changer for 2 years when I was younger and YES we would get super pissed if you didn't tell us about the fix a flat in the tire. Most people don't even know that its super flammable number one and two, normally we bust the bead while there is still a little air in the tire and if you do that with liquid in it, you guessed it, it goes all over your legs mostly but sometimes your shirt. Its a mess and it never works. If you are going to do something like that, get one of those old school push in plugs and use an air compressor that uses your cigarette lighter socket instead

I think the guy who had the phd meant changing the tire around the rim as there are special expensive tools needed to put a new tire on. When he was referring to something else I think he was explaining changing the wheel or using fix a flat

Here's the best car advice I could ever give anyone: maybe every second time you fill your car up at the servo, check the tyres, check the oil, check the coolant, and fill the washer bottle and give the wipers a wipe with wet paper towel or cloth. The wiper thing is just to help it last longer, but the oil, coolant, and tyres are the most important things. Doing these three things eliminates probably 90% of breakdowns straight away.

14:20 how much you guys wanna bet that this guy is 150lbs overweight, drinks a 2-liter of mt. Dew a day, lives out of his mom’s basement never owned a car and his “45 years of experience” is him changing the batteries on rc cars. All his information is random stuff said sarcastically by SLpostrs who actually know what they are doing and he takes their word as gospel.

Dude, you guys need to get into shape. Guy on the right looks like he could look like Chris Pratt if he got the big mole removed and worked out. The guy on the left has great eyes but also just needs to lose some body fat % and remove that moustache. Hell, both of you just need to shave. Get a proper diet going and hit the gym, then take acting classes.

See I dunno about that "don't negotiatie" because when I bought my Fiesta I needed the car that day to be able to keep going to work and so I made no haggling attempts. I showed up with a pre-approved loan from my bank for what they advertised the car at and instead of accepting that the dealership spent 5-6 hours making me sit there waiting angrily before presenting me with a ford credit agreement for 5 grand more than my loan which by then having to work the next day with the car I had been driving now inoperable, without enough time to hunt down another fiesta I signed their papers so not negotiating didn't do me a lick of good. The salesman also stayed well away from me while they were "calculating" my loan stuff. When I needed a bigger car I went to the same dealer and told them what I could afford per month and they offered me a Focus for $145 more per month than I told them I was capable of paying at the time. That made plenty of acrimony between me and my Ford dealership.
axel Pred 24 dnevi
its funny how theyre answering the question assuming the asker of the question knows how a car is supposed to work. the way theyre asking the question means they dont know much if any about car parts lmfao
Kyle Kendrick
Kyle Kendrick Pred 25 dnevi
On the last question he thought the asker needed to know if changing a tire on and off a rim is important. That’s why he reiterated that swapping is pretty important to know but not essential. Simple.

The deeper lesson here? If you can spend a reasonable amount of time and already have a reasonable amount of knowledge on the subject, than for the love of God yes go for it. Just a quick 30 minute or hour internet search can and will save you hundreds and/or thousands. But if you got to spend days or weeks on Google, SLpost, Diagrams, Blueprints, Charts, asking your EX's, mom's, boyfriend's, husband's pet monkey-cat that's missing an eye and got half a testicile how to fix something...then just let someone else fix the damn thing!
Thinginator5000 Pred 28 dnevi
Strength? What does strength have to do with changing a tire? I have wimpy noodle arms and I've successfully used tire machines plenty of times, the machine does most of the work for you. And swapping wheels isn't too difficult either, anyone can learn how.
