“Tyres are the only part of a vehicle that come into contact with the road surface. Their structure and composition have a significant effect on the vehicle’s performance.“
This stage will be identical to the steps we followed in Stage 04.
The Right Rear Tyre
Ensure the foam insert is completely inside the Tyre and gives the Tyre a fully inflated appearance:
Retrieve your Rear Right Wheel Rim from the previous stage. Push the Rear Right Wheel Rim through the Rear Tyre assembly, as shown.
As you complete this step, take care not to damage the small valve stem detail on the Wheel Rim. Note this smooth line in the tread of the Tyre (red arrow below). This is towards the outside edge of the Tyre. Therefore, the Rim should be inserted accordingly. I tend insert my Rims from the inside of the Tyre to prevent any ‘scrub’ marks from showing on the outside of the Tyre:
Seat both beads of the Rear Tyre fully into the matching grooves around the edges of the Wheel Rim, as shown.
It may help to roll the tire on your work surface under the palm of your hand. The pressure will help seat the beads evenly. Note the tiny valve stem:
This is the last Wheel assembly we need to build for our LaFerrari model! Keep this Wheel stored safely until we need it again later on.
