    • Insert the 19 mm socket wrench between the rubber tire and the metal frame.

    • Any rigid flat metal object can be used for this step.

    • Carefully slide the 19 mm socket wrench all the way around the tire. Bend the wrench down to pop the tire out of the bead of the rim.

    • When undoing the tire, be careful using the back of the wrench because the tool can damage the tire tube and or wheel frame.

    • Reach inside the tire and remove the tube from the metal frame.
