Short tutorial how I mount tires just using hands and simple tools. Also how to stretch tires. Tires are Falken FK452 215/40r16 and wheels are custom made by me. Those are originally e30 stock bottlecaps (14×7″) but I rebarreled them so the size is now 16×9,75″.

The next thing that you are going to need to do is to slide the other part of the tire in the rim.This surely is the most difficult thing to do in the manual tire mounting process so take your time and do it carefully.


Next, once that is done, spray it with soapy water once again and apply normal deodorant inside it. You are going to need a lighter for the next step. Inflate the tire for a second and immediately light the deodorant on fire. This is going to make the tire fir nice and snug in place,and thats it.
