Electric Scooter Tire Replacement

Replacing the tire of an electric scooter is done in the same way as a bicycle. In the following Xiaomi M365 tire replacement video, the correct procedure is demonstrated. If the outer tire is worn and you are replacing it, it is advisable to also install a new inner tube. Tire wear and punctures are usually caused by insufficient tire pressure.

The recommended tire pressure for Xiaomi M365 is in the range of 3-4 bars. If the tire pressure drops below this range, it can lead to wear on both the outer and inner tire. Punctures in Xiaomi M365 tires are commonly attributed to incorrect tire pressures. Additionally, low tire pressure can affect maneuverability, and bumps may transmit directly through the tire to the rim.

When changing tires, it's important to consider the wires leading to the motor to avoid impacts and pulls. Sometimes, dealing with larger tires can be a real challenge.

Inside the tire, there are steel wires that settle on the inner side of the rim, and these can be so tight that the only option is to cut the entire tire with a hacksaw and pliers.

When installing a new tire with tire levers/screwdrivers, be careful with the corners of the rim, as they can easily leave ugly marks. To prevent this, you can insert a piece of plastic or even tape between the tire lever and the rim before bending.
