Can I Install New Tires Myself?

Get your tires installed at your local Blain’s Farm & Fleet tire shop.

Whether you bought your new tires at a tire shop or online, you may wonder if you can install them yourself. It’s possible to install your own tires. Of course, you need the right equipment–which can be expensive–and the know-how. On the other hand, if you don’t have the right tools and knowledge, installing your own tires can be a dangerous disaster. While some may argue that installing your own tires can save you money, it’s definitely a job that’s better left to your tire shop or service center professionals.

Installing Your Tires

Tire installation has many steps that require the right equipment, which can be found in your local tire shop. The wheels are taken off your vehicle and any rust or corrosion is cleaned off. Old wheel weights are removed and the old tire is recycled. The rims are polished and the valve stem is replaced. While these first steps might seem simple, mounting the tires is where you’ll really want service center members working on your tires.

Mounting Your Tires

Before your tires can be mounted, they need to be balanced. The tires are spun on a balancing machine to make sure they’re properly balanced. They can also be spun on a road force wheel balancing machine, which puts pressure on the tire to simulate the weight of your vehicle on the wheel. Balanced tires give you a smooth, safe and even ride. They also help with even tread wear, making your tires last longer.
