Tips on Replacing Riding Lawn Mower Tires
Unlike the hassle of changing flat car tires, replacing riding lawn mower tires is easier and simpler although it depends on the area the mower is as the tires are changed. This is because you do not carry a spare tire while you are mowing. As such, it can be disappointing if you are mowing at a distance from where the spare tire of your riding lawn mower is.
On the other hand, if you are replacing riding lawn mower tires, you should make sure of your safety first. Changing a flat car tire is not as perilous as changing riding lawn mower tires. You should first consider a few things before changing mower tires.
First, you have to make sure that the lawn mower sits on a flat surface. If you are on a raised terrain as the tire goes out, make sure you find a way to bring the mower to a safer area that is flat level.
Once the mower is already on a flat surface, you can start replacing the riding lawn mower tires. Take off the tire and clean it to eliminate any debris or dirt that covers the lug nuts. Then, you can already loosen the lug nuts after cleaning the tire. Make sure that the wheel is on the ground when you loosen the lug nuts.
Have the jack lift the mower and take off the lug nuts completely. Make sure you are able to block the rear wheels to avoid the mower rolling backwards as you lift with the jack. Set aside the flat tire and take it for repair or buy a new tire. Once you have inflated that tire, put it back to the mower and secure the lug nuts finger tight. Once you bring down the mower with the jack, tighten the lug nuts to make sure the wheel does not come off while in use.
