The secret to getting a tire on easy it is to get both of the beads of the tire in the middle of the rim where it smaller right away and throughout the whole process

Blacks zip are only for temporary use (not for prisoners they have stronger ones them ha ha)

Don't use water (which dish soap contains mostly) on steel rims because they will rust from the inside from the get go.

No tools against the painted rims means no chips and on Chrome plated rims means no scratches in the chrome by the tire which will cause rust,

Even if you cannot see the marks left by tire irons because hid by the tire, corrosion in aluminum rims and rust in the steel rim will form there why would you want that,

I’ve been changing tires since age 8 and I’d have to say the zip ties is the best method for Mopeds/small bikes because it gets the bead of both sides of the tire right into the middle of the rim and keeps it there and it doesn’t pinch tubes,

Most times the tire and tube goes on with just with your hands and if you do need a tire iron at the very end it’s just one pull of the tire iron and that’s it,

Believe me I was a unbeliever too but now that’s the only way I do it
