Before the final step: check the adequate installation of the tire on the rim so that the tire frames adjust properly put in place inside the grooves (for a better pressure of the tire).

Ultimate step, we proceeded to the inflation to the maximum pressure indicated on the side of the tire in order to validate the proper placement of the beads in the grooves. You should hear a noise of the rough slamming.

Once the tires inflated I will check that the tire is correctly placed by checking the line present on the tire’s side.
