View Full Version : Replacing stock front tires
01-16-2006, 11:17 AM
Hi, I went to replace my stock victory tires in the front and realized that the ball bearing were stuck inside the wheels when I took them off.
To install aftermarket wheels, do I need to remove these from the stock wheels or buy new ones to go in the new wheels? How do I remove them if I have to reuse them?
Thanks for the help

yes you do need those bearings, i jsut hold the wheel upside down and hit it untill the bearing falls out.

I just take a small tunig screwdriver and evenly go around the bearing with a good amount of force until it pops out....little quicker than the tapping method
I agree with gasshead - use a small screwdriver and push the bearings out from the opposite side of the wheel. Put the screwdriver through the hole and push outward, but be really gentle and work your way around a little at a time. As long as they are out, you might as well clean them and re-lube them. Don't forget to be careful not to overtighten the front wheel nuts when you reinstall the front wheels or else you'll have a little tiny problem with speed.....haha
