A lot of parents have started using strollers for their children. These strollers have started getting a lot of attention, and people are looking for different brands to buy the one that suits them. One of the brands that you can trust is the Bob stroller. This particular brand is well-known for the kind of quality that it makes. One of the best things you can do with this stroller is changed the tire. This article will give you a step-by-step process for changing the tire.
This is how I replaced my tire yesterday, and this is what I did:
1) Unscrewed the screws holding the handlebar onto its base (two black screws). The screwdriver tip should have an adjustable wrench at one end of it. If yours doesn’t come with one, grab any fixed-end wrench from around your house or toolbox for this
Step 2) Pull out all four rubber washers (there are two per side).
3) Remove both sides of the tubing by pulling forward on them gently until they retract into their holders
4) Push down hard enough, so that tube from the old tire pops out of its holder, and you can pull it up (you might have to hold on to some tubing while doing this, as pulling on the tube itself won’t work).
5) Put a new tube into each side of the stroller.
6) Line up both tubes so that they are in front of their holders at least three inches before inserting them fully down into their holders
7) Tighten screws by hand until all is secure
8 )press rubber washers back onto the post.
9) Screw the base back onto the handlebar
10) Attach your Bob jogging board or any other piece with non-skid material close enough for your child’s feet without touching her
What do you need to replace a Bob stroller tire?
In order to replace a Bob stroller tire, you will need a few essential items. A good air pump is necessary to inflate the tires regularly on a jogger stroller, such as the BOB Revolution. You should also have a compatible tire or tube, a tire pump, and two flathead screwdrivers. Last but not least, safety glass is required in unfortunate accidents.
Bob stroller tires come in different PSI ranges and must be inspected for correct pressure. If the sidewalls are worn and there is evidence of overfilling, you may need to replace the tire. If the tire is severely worn, it may be time for a new stroller tire altogether.
How do you remove the old tire from the stroller?
You need to take a few simple steps to remove the old tire from the stroller. First, disengage the parking brake and open the quick-release lever. For BOB strollers with a secondary lever, you may need to press it to remove the wheel. To remove the front wheel, lock the swivel feature forward if your stroller has a front swivel wheel. Open the quick-release lever, unthread the nuts, and remove the wheel.
To remove the tire, open the quick-release lever on the BOB stroller, then remove the wheel. If your BOB stroller model has a secondary lever, you may press it to remove this wheel. Finally, slide a flat end screwdriver between the tire and wheel to gently pry them apart–working in 4-inch steps until you’ve removed it entirely from Wheel Rim.
How do you install the new tire onto the stroller?
The instructions are pretty clear. You just need to remove the old tire, put on the new one and then tighten it down with a few wheels turns.
Step 1: Remove the Old Tire
First, unlock the quick-release lever and remove the wheel. Then, loosen the nut holding the wheel with a flathead screwdriver. Once the wheel is loose, use another flathead screwdriver to push the wheel off the rim.
Step 2: Install New Tire
Next, remove the old tire and set it aside. Then, insert the new tire into the stroller frame. Make sure the tire is centred on the wheel rims. Use a flathead screwdriver to help centre the tire.
Step 3: Secure the Tires
Once the tire is properly positioned, reattach the wheel using the quick-release lever. Reinstall the nut and tighten it down with a flathead screwdriver.
Step 4: Tighten the Quick Release Lever
Finally, tighten the quick-release lever by turning it counterclockwise. This will secure the wheel in place.
What is the correct way to pump up a Bob stroller tire?
The correct way to pump up a Bob stroller tire is to use the hand pump provided with the stroller. The hand pump is guaranteed to fit onto the valve stem of the stroller tire and will be able to inflate the stroller tire very effectively. Here are the simple steps to follow:
1. Remove the valve cap from the tire by turning counterclockwise.
2. Insert the valve into the pump’s hole and rotate it clockwise to open it.
3. Place the pump firmly onto the valve stem and start pumping.
4. Continue to pump until the tire inflates firmly (about 5-6 pumps).
5. Inflate the tire to the recommended PSI.
Here is a video that explains this in more detail.
What common reasons people might need to replace their Bob stroller tires?
You may need to replace your Bob stroller tire for many reasons. Some of them include:
• Cracks or tears in the treads
• Poor air pressure
• Damage to the sidewalls
• Improper inflation
• Worn out valves
• Loose nuts
• Broken spokes
• Bent rims
• Damaged frames
How much air should be in a BOB stroller tire?
The tire pressure you should use depends on how much pressure it takes for you to feel that the tire is firm to the touch. You should not exceed this amount, which could cause the tire to burst. While walking, if you have to push with a lot of force on the tire, you should adjust the tire. While riding, if you feel that your hands are stable on the handles, you should adjust the tire.
The air pressure required is 80 to 108 inches pounds. Use a pressure gauge to measure it. The gauge should read pressure as psi, or kg/cm2 (or lbs/in2). Use a pump designed for bike tires. The gauge should indicate the measurement in psi or kg/cm2. Use a pump designed for bike tires.
Why does my Bob stroller tire feel like it’s not inflated enough?
If your stroller tire feels like it’s not fully inflated, there could be several possible causes. One reason is that the valve stem is too small. Another possibility is that the valve stem was damaged during installation. If you’re having trouble getting the right amount of air into your stroller tire, try these tips:
• Check the valve stem size. It should be about 1/2 inch long.
• Try tightening the valve stem locknut.
• Try replacing the valve stem.
• Try installing the tire again.
• Make sure the valve stem is inserted all the way into the valve body.
• Be sure to check the tire pressure before leaving home.
My new tire isn’t staying inflated; what could be the problem?
If a new tire is not holding air, you should check to ensure that you have installed the valve core properly. The sealant may be defective or damaged if it is installed properly, but the tire does not hold air.
You should then remove and reinstall the valve core to correct the problem. If you do not have your spare tire, you should take your vehicle to a professional to replace it. If it is an older tire and you have misplaced the valve core, you should remove it and use a tire inflator to reinstall it. This will ensure that your tire will hold air.
I’m having trouble removing my old tire; what should I do?

• Use a flathead screwdriver to pry up the wheel rim.
• Try turning the wheel upside down.
• Turn the wheel over and pull the tire off.
• Remove the lug nuts by hand, using a socket wrench.
• Don’t forget to save the old tire for recycling.
