Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to take the inner tube out from the wheel without taking the whole tire off. Leaving the tire on to extract the inner tube will save you a lot of time and work.

Steps

  1. 1
    First thing we need to do is make sure the inner tube is completely deflated
    .
    Take the nozzle off, open the valve and allow all air to escape. Squeeze to tire to make sure all the air is gone.

    We also need to unscrew the clamp around the valve, which will allow us to take out the inner tube
    .
    Take off the clamp completely and leave it to the side to be used again.

    With the clamps, we're going to insert them here and pull upwards so that the tire comes over the rim
    .
    We're going to do this several times with each clamp and this will make the tire pop out. If one falls out, it's not a problem, you can move on to another area.

    Now the tire is out enough that we can use our hands
    .
    Dig your fingers underneath and go around until the tire has come out all the way around the wheel.
