    Alright so maybe the tire guy thought the question was about literally mounting a tire on a wheel. They get a pass...for now 👀

      Sorry guys I commented before reading the comments dude was talking about a tire on wheel swap thats not that big a deal on a freightliner or peterbuilt even your 4500 series trucks its not that big a deal i think you call it a double lipped bead but on big rigs tire gets real low. Not flat it just comes of the bead they operate at 100-115 psi Ive seen and I been driving a lazer spot all over a big scrap yard all day when I wasnt in a material handler or my f150 picking up junk cars with a wench trailer

      What he said about the sealant and pump is very common these days. Less and less cars have spare wheels these days to reduce weight for emissions targets. If you're lucky there may be a space saver wheel but that is becoming rarer.

      Jobe is right about the tire guys hating the slime in the tires. Its messy and gets every. Also mounting a tire does not require a lot of strength at all to do

Dew a day, lives out of his mom’s basement never owned a car and his “45 years of experience” is him changing the batteries on rc cars. All his information is random stuff said sarcastically by FItoprs who actually know what they are doing and he takes their word as gospel.

    Dude, you guys need to get into shape. Guy on the right looks like he could look like Chris Pratt if he got the big mole removed and worked out. The guy on the left has great eyes but also just needs to lose some body fat % and remove that moustache. Hell, both of you just need to shave. Get a proper diet going and hit the gym, then take acting classes.

    See I dunno about that "don't negotiatie" because when I bought my Fiesta I needed the car that day to be able to keep going to work and so I made no haggling attempts. I showed up with a pre-approved loan from my bank for what they advertised the car at and instead of accepting that the dealership spent 5-6 hours making me sit there waiting angrily before presenting me with a ford credit agreement for 5 grand more than my loan which by then having to work the next day with the car I had been driving now inoperable, without enough time to hunt down another fiesta I signed their papers so not negotiating didn't do me a lick of good. The salesman also stayed well away from me while they were "calculating" my loan stuff. When I needed a bigger car I went to the same dealer and told them what I could afford per month and they offered me a Focus for $145 more per month than I told them I was capable of paying at the time. That made plenty of acrimony between me and my Ford dealership.

    its funny how theyre answering the question assuming the asker of the question knows how a car is supposed to work. the way theyre asking the question means they dont know much if any about car parts lmfao

    On the last question he thought the asker needed to know if changing a tire on and off a rim is important. That’s why he reiterated that swapping is pretty important to know but not essential. Simple.

    The deeper lesson here? If you can spend a reasonable amount of time and already have a reasonable amount of knowledge on the subject, than for the love of God yes go for it. Just a quick 30 minute or hour internet search can and will save you hundreds and/or thousands. But if you got to spend days or weeks on Google, FItop, Diagrams, Blueprints, Charts, asking your EX's, mom's, boyfriend's, husband's pet monkey-cat that's missing an eye and got half a testicile how to fix something...then just let someone else fix the damn thing!

    To do a burnout in an automatic: First put the car in reverse and get the car moving about 15mph or so backwards, then (while still traveling backwards) slam the car into drive and floor it. Much more effective than just going from neutral to drive.

    My first new car I bought, I didn't negotiate. But that's because scion sold their cars that way and the car was inexpensive in the first place. I was and still am happy with that part. However I am disappointed in paying extra for a warrantee. I wasn't hassled into it, it's just that it didn't help when my car actually broke down.

    As a guy who has worked in a tire shop, thank you for pointing out that the guys in the tire shop will hate you for putting that slime crap in there. Please, dont waste your money on it. Either throw on a spare or just get it to a shop ASAP. Ive seen some nasty things inside a tire, but the most common is that disgusting slime.
