Help? Quick Fix or Pain

MY tire went flat on the way home Saturday night. I thought there was a hole in it and i just got to look at it today and its not the tire. The stem where you put air into it is messed it. Its got either a small whole or its seperated wher it hits the rim. Is this an easy fix or is it a pain. What do i have to replace just the stem or something else. Pls help. I want to ride again.

just find a local place by you. If you can take the rim off yourself, it will save some money.

Even then shouldn't be anything to much, but if the tread is getting pretty low, Might just want to bite the bullet and get yourself a new tire

if you can take the wheel off, break the bead and push it to one side of the rim enough to reach the steam, even if you can only reach it with pliers that is enough.

Go to walmart or autoparts place and buy a stem, very cheap. Get a friend to help but really it can be done by yourself


check youtube on a vid of how to break a bead loose.

Get creative, large c clamps and some flat bar or 2x4 could be used to break the bead and pinch the tire so you can reach the stem.

air

just air it back up, by break the bead he means your just pushing the sidewall into the center of the rim enough to put a new stem in because they have to be installed from the inside.

just stick the stem into the hole and pull it in place with a pair of pliers, after this you can air it right up. the bead will pop back onto the rim and your good to go.

U could bring it to a tire shop and let them brake the bead and put a valve in. Mark where the valve stem is whether u break one of the beads or take the whole tire off... That way u don't need to rebalance the tire.

Make sure that chain is set properly when u go back together!

keep your finger out of the rim when you air back up, or else you will be in a world of pain with a wheel hanging from your finger with no way to get it off.
