Do not use grease or oil-based lubricants to aid tire installation
Do not use levers or other tools to mount the tires as they may damage the seal at the bead and result in air leaks. Only use tire levers designed specifically for use with IRC Tubeless Tires.
Not applying soapy water to the rim and around the tire entire tire bead to ease the tire onto the rim may result in a poor seal between the rim and tire bead, causing air leaks.
If, after mounting the tire to the rim, air leaks occur at the rim/bead interface, repeat the Steps 1-3 below, using more soapy water.
To make fitting the tire to the rim easier, apply soapy water to the rim and around the tire entire tire bead (fig. 1). Beginning at the rim edge opposite the valve stem, push one side of the tire bead into the channel at the inside center of the rim. Be sure the bead is completely seated near the valve stem (fig. 2).
Install the other side of the tire following Step 1 above (fig.3 & 4).
Make sure both beads are evenly seated in the rim (fig.5) then inflate the tire to 87 PSI/600 kpa.
Check that the tire is seated straight and evenly on the rim (fig.6). If it is, let the air out of the tire and confirm that the beads are locked into place on the rim. If the beads are not locked into place when the air is let out, the tire will fall to the center channel of the rim. If this occurs, refit the beads onto the rim, repeating Steps 1-3.
After confirming that the beads are locked into place, inflate the tire to the specified air pressure. Ride after confirming that no air is leaking.
