Guide to putting a 2.2 tire on a 2.8 rim.

By derrick_gillespie

Tools and supplies needed:
4 2.2 Tires
4 2.8 Wheels
1 medium-small flathead screwdriver
1 small X-acto Knife
1 roll Duct Tape
1 bottle of Gorilla brand Super Glue - not the brown stuff

1. Remove bead from 2.2 tire.


2. "Tape" the inside of the tire to tame down the balloon effect.


3. Insert foam of choice.



4. Pre-heat oven to 425 or 450 degrees, depending on your oven


5. Once pre-heated turn oven off, set the timer for 20 minutes.


6. Insert 2.8 rims into oven chrome side down and start timer.


7. Pull 2.8 tires off 2.8 rims.

8. Slide 2.2 tires onto 2.8 rims

9. Use screwdriver to tuck the tire into the slit of the rim. Its kinda tricky but you'll figure it out.

10. Run a line of glue where the tire meets the rim.

11. Repeat steps 9 & 10 on the other side of the rim.



Your done! Good Job Homie!
