How to Perform Tubeless Maintenance
You should check the sealant level in your tubeless tires about every 3 months. Not sure when you did it last? Now is a great time. Here’s how to check your sealant and add more if needed.
- Remove all the air from your tire.
- Push the bead of the tire away from the rim to break the seal of the tire.
- Use a tire lever to get one side of the tire off the rim.
- Check sealant level. If it is dry or there is very little left add 2 ounces of sealant to the tire. We recommend using Stan’s Tire Sealant.
- Use your hands to push the tire back onto the rim.
- Inflate the tire quickly to set the tire bead. You will hear a loud pop as the bead sets. Sometimes this step is easier to perform with an air compressor but modern tubeless systems have made it easier than ever to do with a floor pump.
Making sure that you have sealant in your tire is important for flat prevention and helping your tires hold air better.
