Fitting tyres: What to look out for?

A tyre is fitted in a workshop.

Stony tracks, uneven roads, potholes – tyres have to withstand a lot. As the direct link between the car and the road, they are subject to a lot of stress. They must be replaced from time to time to ensure that they always roll reliably. This means that the tyre, i.e. the rubber, must be removed from the rim and changed.

Unlike changing a wheel, you should never attempt to mount tyres on rims (together they form the "wheel"), on your own. It is best to have the tyre change carried out by specialists and using a special tyre changing machine. Take note: Only garage employees are allowed to change run-flat and high-performance wide tyres.
