If you have a jogging stroller, then you know how important it is to keep the tires in good condition. But what do you do when one of the tires goes flat? You could take it to a shop and have them fix it, but that can be expensive. Or, you could change the tire yourself. But the question is, do you know how to change a jogging stroller tire? It’s not as difficult as it sounds, and this blog post will show you how to do it.
If you have a jogging stroller, it’s important to know how to change the tire. After all, you never know when you might get a flat! Here’s a quick and easy guide on how to do it:
But first let’s take a look what you’ll need:
A new tire
A wrench or pliers
An adjustable wrench (optional)
Now it’s time to start the process:
1. Remove the old tire. Use the wrench or pliers to loosen the bolts that hold the tire in place. Once they are loose, remove the tire completely. If the inner tube is still intact, you can save it and use it again. If not, you’ll need to replace it as well.
2. Once the wheel is off, take a look at the tire. If it’s just flat, you can inflate it using a bike pump or an air compressor.
3. If the tire is punctured, you’ll need to patch it or replace it altogether. To do this, remove the inner tube from the tire and either patch the hole or replace the inner tube entirely.
4. Once the tire is repaired or replaced, put the wheel back on the stroller and screw the bolts back in place. Inflate the tire to the correct pressure and you’re good to go!
5. Put on the new tire. On the other hand, if the tire needs to be replaced then put in the new tire. Align the new tire with the bolts and start threading them in place. Make sure they are tight, but don’t over tighten them as this could damage the stroller frame.
6. Inflate the tire. Use a pump or an air compressor to inflate the tire to the correct pressure. You can find this information on the side of the tire.
7. Always keep a spare tire with you when you go out for a run, just in case you get a flat while you’re out!
And that’s it! Now you know how to change a jogging stroller tire. Just remember to keep a spare tire with you when you go out for a run, just in case!
If the bolts are difficult to remove, you can use an adjustable wrench to help loosen them.
When inflating the tire, make sure you don’t over inflate it as this could damage the stroller frame.
Always keep a spare tire with you when you go out for a run, just in case you get a flat while you’re out!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask a sales associate at your local running store. They’ll be happy to help!

My stroller isn’t moving smoothly. What could be the problem?
First, check to make sure the tires are properly inflated. If they are low on air, this can cause the stroller to feel sluggish.
