If you have a 10 inch wheel hoverboard and the tire is flat, you can buy a new hoverboard tube replacement and replace the flat tube using a couple of flat head screw drivers. If your tire is punctured too, then you'll want to replace that with a 10" x 2.125 hoverboard tire as well.


Section 1: Remove Hoverboard Tire

Step 1

Place your 10 inch hoverboard on its side so the good wheel is on the ground, and the flat tire is facing the ceiling. Put on your mechanic's gloves.

Step 2

Remove the air cap from the air valve stem and completely deflate the tire.

Step 3

Take the first flathead screwdriver and place is on the outer edge of the hoverboard wheel's rim, prying underneath the tire so it lifts the tire over the lip of the rim.

Step 4

Insert the second flathead screwdriver while continuing to pry the tire upward.

Step 5

Drag the second flathead screwdriver across the rim, moving it along and releasing the tire from underneath the rim. 

Step 6

Once the top of the tire is dislodged from the rim, remove the screwdrivers and pull the tire off using your gloves for grip.


Section 2: Install New Hoverboard Tire

Step 7

Prepare the new parts, be it the tube or the tube & tire set.

Step 8

Insert the valve step into the hole in the rim.

Step 9

Wrap the tube inside of the tire.

Step 10

Using your hands, push the tire down onto the rim until it goes over the lip.

Step 11

Still using your hands, press the top lip of the tire down onto the rip so it catches. Keep it pressed down and insert a flathead screwdriver to keep it down.

Step 12

Using the second flathead screwdriver, place it inside the lip and press down on the tire while sliding it across the rim. The tire should begin to insert into the rim an catch.

Step 13

Use the second flathead screwdriver to slide all of the way over the rim until the tire and tube are installed.

Step 14

Center the new tube and tire radially and inflate the tire. Centering is very important so you won't have an off balanced tire that would cause wobbling, which could be dangerous.
