New valve stem, core and cap are recommended for all new tires.
Tire beads and rim flanges should be treated with a recommended lubricant inside and out. Beads should be lubricated both during mounting and dismounting (in case you wish to remount the tire and also to protect the wheel from damage).
Do not, under any circumstances, use liquids such as oil, gasoline, spirits, or water.
