It sounds like you have the wrong size tire, check on the tire and rim and compare, is it a mountain bike or road bike if it is a road bike it could be that the rim and tire sizes are 700c and 27", these two sizes are very close, but do not quite fit. You may also have a damaged bead on your tire however this is unlikely. I would suggest first to check that the rim and tire sizes match, the size of the rim is usually stamped into the metal between two of the spokes, but mat be indicated with a sticker, and the tire size is printed on the side of the tire. good luck.

Remove the hub from the back wheel

Several ways will work. The wheel shrinks in real cold weather, which we are now having. If you use a large sledge hammer to hit the inside of the tire or wheel, it will usually get it off. Be careful not to dent your wheel rim where it seals the tire. Hit it inside of the rim. Or you can use a large piece of wood, or ball bat to hit the outside of the tire, this will sometimes work. If neither of these methods work, then try to heat the wheel with a torch. But be careful and stay away from where the tire seals with the rim. Apply the heat to the wheel close to the hub. This should expand the wheel and release it from the hub.

Which is the correct Way to Repaint Jeep Wheels?

The best is to remove the tire from the rim, clean the rim to remove dust, dirt. oil etc. Remove any rust with a course sandpaper, sand the rim starting with a medium paper to a fine texture. Prep the surface to be painted and remove the valve stem (you will need a tool to install a new one). Prior to painting, wipe the surface with a paint thiner, prime the rim with a quality automotive grade primer. Paint the rims with your color choice in even strokes moving completly across the rim each pass, slightly overlap each stroke. Allow the paint to completly dry. To help protect the rim longer apply one or two coats of a quality clear coat to the painted surface.

My scooter is making loud clicking sounds as though something has come loose & hitting something in the rear wheels as it goes around. The repair tech rotated the rear tires last week & this helped...

Its quite common for Pride scooters to be assembled using little or no grease on the rear axle. If the noise is like a stone stuck in the tyre, its probably a 'Dry Axle' as mentioned above. Try just removing the rear wheel(s) and greasing the axle. This normally cures the problem. When removing the wheel, be careful not to lose the hub key which slots into the axle and wheel to stop the wheel spinning freely on the axle. Hope this helps.

Back wheels make a loud clicking noise

Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.

How do you remove the front tire from a Honda crf 150 cc dirt bike?

The axel has a nut on one end and two bolts or one pinching the shaft on the other. Jack the wheel off the grond unscrew the nut loosen the pinch blots pull out the axel and the wheel falls out Watch wher the spacers go as they have to go back turned the right way. the brake rotor has to be lined up with the caliper to put it back in as you don't push the brake with the wheel off as the pads will have tobe pried open to get the rotor back in. Tring to fix a flat? same as a bicycle except use soapy water don't forget to use water to cheak for leaks then put on the powder on the tube before it all goes back good tire irons come from bike dealers and bike parts suppliers. Screw drivers cause more troble than thier worth. Road going bikes chage the tube patches are Illegal DOT

19 inch classic NICHE CLUTCH chrome rims aka INKIES question?

Two items are of importance when changing tires.
Tire height will change the distance rolled per revolution hence a larger tire will make your computer and speedometer/odometer think that the car is moving slower and a shorter distance each time the tire turns. It also puts more strain on the driveline in order to turn it. This creates problems going uphill and from standing starts.
The second item is wheel offset. Every wheel has a certain amount of offset built into it. "0" offset is when the actual mounting surface of the wheel is half way between both edges of the wheel. Negative offset tends to tuck the wheel under the vehicle more, positive causes the wheel to extend towards the outside. If incorrect, this can cause clearance problems with tires hitting either the inside of the wheel tubs or edges of the fenders. Too much positive offset can also place stress on the wheel bearings.
Regardless of where a wheel came from, it must match the bolt pattern of your hubs or it will not work.
I recommend that you stay within one size height wise in regards to tires and that you also keep wheel offset changes as close to factory as possible, unless you understand the engineering behind it.

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

Tubed tire, right? COULD be a flat spot but my gut tells me the tire isn't mounted correctly. My guess is that if you look at the sidewall of the tire next to the rim on one side or the other, you'll notice that the rubber edge that sits just outside the rim isn't consistent around the entire rim because they didn't seat the bead properly. Typically all you have to do is let some air out and resituate the tire on the rim a little and keep an eye on it as you inflate it. You can overinflate the tire to around 50 to 60 PSI to help it seat correctly on the rim but be sure to reduce the air pressure--you don't want to leave it like that. The other thing it could be if it's doing this at high speeds only is that the wheel is severely out of balance, in which case you would need to take the wheel off the bike and balance it, but my gut still says it's the way the tire was installed on the bike. For those of you looking for the procedure for changing a tire and/or balancing a wheel, this is a pretty good step-by-step guide:
