The tires are flat

The tires have lost air and I want to reinflate. Problem is when I try to inflate with a compressor or bicycle pump (doesn't screw on to valve) the valve stem pushes back into the tire. Any suggetions?

You need to purchase an adapter which pushes onto the valve (so it doesn't depress the valve stem) and the other end is a standard screw fix to a bicycle pump.

Any good bicycle store stocks them.

The valve you are desrcibing is pretty standard on racing type bicycles.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.

How do i fix flat tires for the 36" john deere stake wagon?


It should have innertubes like a bicycle. Just take the wheel off and use a flathead screwdriver to pry one side of the tire off the rim. Be careful to not damage the tube when doing this. Once u have one side of the tire over the rim you can pull the tube out. You can use any bicycle tube repair kit to fix any leaks you find. Easiest way for small tubes like this is just fill a sink with water, air up the tube and put it under the water to find any leaks.

The left back tire on my Phil and Teds Classic buggy keeps coming off the rim. I have fixed it by letting the air out of the tire, resetting the tire inside the rim and then refilling the tire. Each time...


What tire pressure are you inflating to? It should only be 22psi. Here's some advice from philandteds.com/support:
First, deflate all of the air from the wheel. Once the air is removed, reposition the tyre tread so that it is even all the way around the rim. Once in place, reinflate the innertube (while holding the tyre tread) and it should allow the tread to stay in the correct location to allow the stroller to roll smoothly. It may take a few tries, but this will almost always fix the issue.

I BOUGHT A LIBERTY JEEP TERRAIN JOGGER STROLLER ABOUT 3 DAYS AGO, TOOK IT ON A TEST TO SIX FLAGS AND HAD A FLAT. HOW DO I FIX THE FLAX. DID NOT SEE WHERE I CAN PUT AIR IN IT. PLEASE HELP!


  • There is a place to add air on the inside of the wheel (rim) of the tire. The problem would be will it hold air.
  • First get a tire pressure gauge and check the air in one of the two good tires to get a good pressure on it.
  • I must caution that if you use a compressor to air it up you will blow the tire in about two seconds. So use a standard foot bike tire pump. It airs up on the little valve stem sticking out from the inside of the wheel (see diagram)
  • Should the tire not hold air then you will patch it just like a standard bike tire. Follow these steps.
  1. First put some air in the tire.
  2. Now get some soapy water and splash it liberal on the tire in and note where the air is leaking from.
  3. Put your thumb on the leak and mark the hole clearly with some chalk. Drawing a small circle around the leak works best.
  4. First the nut on the bolt on the side of the wheel has a lock pin that needs to come out. Straiten it with a pair of pliers and then pull it out.
  5. Now remove the nut with a wrench or socket.
  6. now pull the bolt out.
  7. Now the wheel will come out of the fork. Mind the placement of the washers as they need to go back where they are upon reassemble.
  8. Now let all the air out of the tire by pushing on the end of the valve stem and pressing on the tire.
  9. Now take a flat screwdriver and gently wedge it between the wheel and tire and walk the tire off the rim.
  10. Now do the same withe the remaining side until the tire is off the wheel completely.
  11. Now use a standard tire patch and repair the leak.
  12. Now reverse to get the tire back on the wheel and the wheel back on the stroller.
  13. Air tire to proper pressure.
  14. Job complete.
  15. I have also included a picture of where to fill the tire from.

Struggling to fit replacement inner tube and tyre to our quinny buzz3... Any tips?


You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..


B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

Flat tires on Radio Flyer all terrain wagon


The trick is to spread out the sides of the tire so that they touch the side of the rim. That way, the air you pump in will fill the tire instead of coming out the sides.

This is how it's done: You will need a cargo strap with a ratchet. Sometimes these are referred to as a "come-along". It might take a few minutes to figure out how it works if you've never used one before, but what you wanna do is wrap the strap of the come-along around the circumference of the tire, and then tighten it. The tightening action will spread the sides of the tire and hold them there.

Good luck!

How do I inflate Jungle Fun Pool, Model #59411EP?


If you are going to blow it by your mouth you'll have to bend the the valve . just an advice get an air pump or compressor to get the air in for safety. If the kids pool is big you'll air in your body.

What kind of pump is used to pump the front tire?


I had the same problem. You have to take off the front tire, pull the red cap back along the pedal to expose the black valve cap. Unscrew the cap (needle nose pliers came in handy) and use a small flathead screwdriver to pop off the white plate that covers the hub of the tire. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the metal plate over the actual tire valve and then you should be able to pump up the tire.

It took me about 5 minutes to get it apart and then back together...why did they have to make it so hard????

How do you put air in the back tire without taking the whole back tire off? Or is that the only way?


I just did this a couple hours ago. taking off back tire will not help you. The rotor is attached to the wheel itself. You need to line up the hole in the rotor with the valve stem. You will need to have a screw on extension to valve stem ( I got lucky and had one). Screw the extension onto the valve stem then use air compressor to air up the tire.
