I recently purchased some Extra Traction Tires for my Segway i180 HT. The tires came mounted on the old-style rims, so I decided to dismount the tires and put them on my newer i180 rims.
I've read several posts in Segway Chat where people recommend that you take Segway wheels to a motorcycle shop to mount or dismount the tires. I've mounted automobile and bicycle tires by hand for many years, so I decided to document how I dismounted the Segway tires for those who may be thinking about doing their own Segway tire work.
The steps I describe in the following web pages will help you dismount a tire from a Segway plastic rim as well as avoid damaging the tire and wheel.
To start, we'll need to collect some tools.
