Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

I have 16 inch tires, but I have a flat on my puch. it has a hole in the side. can i use my dremmell to cut a half inch off the inside to make it fit my puch? I dont have any tools, and my mechanic is away for the mummorial day weekend. so i have to do it myself. will this work?

You need a special tool called a tire stretcher. I think they sell them at treats.

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Just use a little propane torch and heat it up a little until it is pliable and stretch it out.

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

i dont half a torch. and i dont half time too wait for treats too mail a stretcher. im trying the dremmell but it is reely slow. it smells bad to. but i think it is gunna work.

can i still use my 16 intertube on the 17 tire? i can stretch it round. right?

front or back wheel?

Ever changed a flat tyre on a bicycle?

I'd personally not recommend cutting tyres, there is normally a metal bead that surrounds the inner of the tyre...

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

A dremmel will work you'll just have a low profile 17inch tire when your done. Who knows people may like them and pay you make make them for there bikes!

Call or email this person, and tell them you only need a tire and tube, and make a deal. http://newjersey.craigslist.org/fod/2958226318.html

works great, done it a hundred times. use some sticky flypaper to help it stay on the rim.or, if you have about 35 hockey pucks and a hair dryer, you can make a solid tire. kinda rough ride, but no more flats.post up pics when you're done!

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Put the rim and the tire in the oven at 450 to soften them up. Then you can just do it with your bear hands. No tools, dude.

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Okay guys. I half ben cutting the tire for a long time now. I keep guming up my dremmell bits. the fire alarm keeps going off so i am outside now. here is how far i got. does it look good too you? I think I need too sand the edje a bit so it dusnt leek/. wen i get all the way around, are there enny speshal tips? this is my first time trying this. you guys half given me some good tips, I like the advize. luks preety gud huh! I think i mite have a futur in this yet!

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Your getting there, but going to need to straighten those edges up. Instead of a dremmel try a cutting wheel

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Thanks rich. unforchunatly I dont half a cutting wheel. I only half a dremmell and no torch. If I was too skrape it on the curb, do you think that wuld be like snadpaper and work? Im hopping so, cuz my mechanic is out of town until memurial day is over.

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

If you have a car you could start it and have someone rev the engine and use the fan for the radiator as a cutting wheel.Then hold the tire along the edge of the fan and use that to cut it. I've had to do that a couple of times myself. Looking good though keep it up

Re: Can I make my 16 tires fit on 17 wheels on my puch?

Lookin' good....I throw a wet towel over the fire-alarm.
