    Can someone tell me how to put on the tire skins for the Honda Hrc 216.

    The tires are very rigid making installion very difficult

    soak the tire in hot water
    You may need some wd-40 or other lubricant
    takes time, and remember it only goes on one way.
    It has ridges on one side, be sure to get them on the correct side.

    My husband had to do that recently, wish we would have thought of the hot water idea. It was not an easy job.

    I did that ONE TIME-that was enough. I then bought the entire wheel which I believe was either cheaper or the same price. It was definitely worth not have to fight that tire even if it was more expensive!
