 re-seating front tire

I think the air pressure was low, and it was really cold out, as I made a turn in a rocky section of my land. I heard a hiss, and now the tire is flat, but it appears that I unseated the bead, as opposed to tearing the sidewall. (tires are pretty new).

How do I re-seat this? Or should I just pull the wheel off and take it down to the dealer?

Thanks,

murph

 re-seating front tire

Sometimes they are hard to re-seat and taking it to a tire dealer may be easiest. With no weight on the tire, I generally wrap a strap or come-along around the tire O.D. I then ratchet it tight causing the center to collapse and the sides to expand outward. Hit it with a high volume of air, just enough to pop the bead. You must release the strap before the pressure gets very high. Sometimes I also take the core out of the valve stem to get more air flow and quickly screw it in once it pops.

 re-seating front tire

If you have a good sized compressor, you can usually do it yourself. It takes a lot of air to fill the tire fast enough to re-seat the bead.

Here's the easy way to do it. Lift the affected tire in the air a little or remove it from the tractor. Take a canvas binder strap and run it around the centerline of the tire and tighten it up, this will cause the tire to compress around the center and the sidewalls to push out. You can also do it with a stout piece of rope tied around the centerline and a bar placed through the rope and spun to form a sort of tourniquet, but it usually requires the help of a second person. Once there is some tension on the tire start to add air, be sure to remove whatever you have around the tire once it starts holding any air at all or the tension will be dramtically increased.

If you have R-1's or R-4's this may make the process a little more difficult, but it can be done.

Best of luck.

I'm betting you have R-4 tires.... otherwise you would have noticed the tire going flat.

R-4's sidewalls are so stiff that it is nearly impossible to reseat the bead without specialized equipment.

Take it to a tire store that does industrial tires.

 re-seating front tire

I went to an industrial tire place to seat my tire once and they had a 5 gallon tub of ??. It looked like grease, thick and blackish brown. they packed it in the bead area by the handful. then applied air and the tire pushed the goo back out as the tire seated. Just for your own knowledge, not actually to use, another method I won't do but have seen in person by a truckdriver, and a neighbor is to spray a little starting fluid in the tire and throw a match.

I watched a 38" Super-Swamper explode and send the guy to the hospital. NOT recomended. Starting fluid is only used for starting ( an '86 jetta with 2 bad glow plugs :P ).

Most likely the tire is OK. I would recommend leaving the wheel on the tractor and jacking it off the ground. Then, make sure there is not dirt between the rim and tire. Next, lubricate the tire and rim with soapy water or tire lubricant that can be purchased from Carquest or other professional autoparts stores. Next, remove the valve stem schrader valve ( valve stem core) so air will quickly blast into the tire and push it out on the rim. The come along wrapped around the tire will certainly help. Also, if the tire will not seal around the rim, then you can buy bead sealer which is thick rubber glue looking stuff from a professional auto parts store.

The big tire store here uses a separate 10 gallon tank of compressed air that blows/blasts around the bead while another line is running at the valve stem.

The separate hand held tank has a huge nozzle and empties in just a couple of seconds. That is the only way they could get my R-4 rear tire back on the rim.

If I ever go back to using those tires they will have inner tubes installed.

"If I ever go back to using those tires they will have inner tubes installed."

I think inner tubes are a must for any low PSI heavy duty application. CUTs are subjected to alot of sidewall forces. My Kubota came with them. Along with the block heater he put on for free, it's another way my dealer was looking out for me. Unless, that is, all Kubotas come with inner tubes.

 re-seating front tire

So I donít have to fight both sides of the tire at once, Iíll usually lay the tire flat, stand on the tire with my feet 180deg apart, and then pull the rim upwards with a little wiggling, and working my way around the tire, to get the back bead to seat as much as possible.

Then I stand the wheel upright, push the unseated side of the rim back, while giving it the air. You may have to finagle it a bit, but all you need is for that front side to seat for split-second, then you got it. Having the valve core removed is a must.

Also, sometimes when itís standing upright, if you still canít get it to seat, the rope or strap around the tread works good, bouncing the tire, or even a good smack on the tread with a large rubber faced hammer will give it enough of a jolt to get the outer bead to seat.

A snap-on type air chuck also helps, if your on your own, and only have two hands.
