Push your bike into a lake, if it floats, tires are fine.

Remove rear wheel with either a 15 mm or a 17 mm wrench. Take the tire off the wheel. If you are replacing a tire, reverse procedure. If you have a flat, replace inner tube, then reverse procedure

Flat tire


A bicycle repair shop should be able to tell you the tube size if you provide the tire size markings on the sidewall of the tire.

I puumped up my tire but as soon i pump it it goes flat


You have whats called a flat. TAKE THE TIRE OFF AND REPLACE THE TUBE INSIDE WITH NEW ONE. If this is a daunting task, take tire and rim to local bike shop and they will be happy to fix for you. Good Luck....

Repeated flat tires even after changing to a new tube


Find the cause and eliminate it before feeding a new tube to that thorn or sliver of glass. Sometimes we pinch the new tube while installing it, too.

How to change the flat tire? Can not remove tire off the rim. How i get the nuts off?


You're not supposed to remove the tire from the rim like with the bicycle. You take the tire nut wrench, jack and the spare tire from the trunk, loosen the nuts, lift the car up with the jack, take off the nuts and the tire, replace the tire with the spare, skrew back the nuts, lower the car down, tighten the nuts, pack everything back in the trunk, drive to the tire fix shop, get the tire fixed, change it back, keep the spare ready for another punkture.

The back rear tires will not keep air in them. How do I fix them or do I need to replace them? (Baby Trend Jogging Stroller)


More than likely there's a leak, maybe small but enough to cause a flat.

As for tubes your local bike shop may carry the 12" or the 16" depending on the stroller make and model. Check the side of the tire to see if you can identify the size, if not the stroller manufacturer or the site should give you more information.

The tires with these jogging strollers come off fairly easily with any regular bicycle tire levers. Although it's possible to take them off by hand, if it's difficult any bicycle shop would carry standard bicycle tire levers. I personally recommend the life time warranty tire levers by Pedro. They are very strong and designed to take off some of the beefiest mountain bike tires.

It would also be good to have spare tubes. You can find bulk tire tubes on eBay for cheap!
