Step 10: Starting at the rim lock, place one spoon on either side and use your hand to push the rim lock bolt to create space for the tire. Spoon the tire into place and use the third spoon to move about halfway up the rim on either side in small increments. Make sure that the tire bead is pushed down into the rim well on both sides to allow the tire to spoon on with less resistance. If you find yourself fighting the tire excessively on the spoons, make sure the bead is pushed down. This can be the difference between a ripped bead, sweat and cursing or a simple installation. Don’t forget the Windex!
