Inflating tire is fun. Especially you know everything regarding it and enjoy every bit of it. You simply put the air in it and it’s done, right?
But what about those people who do not know how to inflate a vehicle’s tire? This time, it would be the case of a car.
Generally, if someone can inflate a car tire, he can inflate any tire in the world. It is the same principle to be followed.
In this brief and exploratory article, we will guide you on how to inflate a car tire at home. Even if you don’t know anything about it, it would not be a problem. This is because we will clarify it in details.
Simply go through our article and read all the way to the end. All this information are meant only for your learning!
1. Before moving on to the next stage, ensure sure your air compressor has appropriate PSI and CFM. To efficiently inflate a bike or automobile tire, you typically need a maximum of 100 PSI and roughly 2+ CFM.
If your compressor’s capabilities are sufficient to satisfy the criteria, you can move on to the next phase.
2. Once you are done with the CFM and the PSI, you can move on to the next step.
3. The next step will be checking if there is any leftover air in it or not. Generally, there is always air in the tire tube. Despite this fact, we suggest you to completely deflate the tire.
4. To do that, you have to put a pin in the mouth of the tube of the tire and then wait for a few minutes.
5. Although, you will not be able to ultimately make it airless, do as much as you can.
6. After that, check your power lines and turn your air compressor on.
7. If you have an air compressor that is portable, you can use that too.
8. Now you have to turn the compressor on. You can connect the hose pipe with the mouth of the tire through which air will go inside of the tire.
9. We suggest you start with lower pressure. If you start with higher pressure at first, you might cause an explosion. This is because there will be a huge change in the overall internal atmosphere of the tire.
10. To avoid that, gently pull the valves of the compressor and let the air in with lower pressure at first. Then slowly increase it.
11. Always keep an eye on the pressure display gauge. It is very important for you to keep yourself updated with the overall situation of the operation.
12. After you are done with the inflating, check if the tire is under good pressure or not.
13. There are many ways by which you can do it. One of them is the load technique. Put some heavy load on the tire and see if the tire is protruding or not.
If it does, you might need to put more air in it. If not, you have your tires inflated.
