I replaced my rear tubeless tyre today with a new one (again tubeless).

I broke the seal, used a few tyre levers to get the tyre off, gave everything a good hose down, dried the wheel and fitted the new one.

What I do when fitting tubeless is get the tyre on, bar for the last small section of the rim, pour in the correct amount of sealant into the tyre, rotate the wheel so the sealant is at the bottom and then use some levers to get the tyre on.

I then use a workshop pump to (pump like crazy!) and inflate the tyre. I squash down on the tyre immediately above the valve to help get some air going in, then inflate until I hear the tyres snap into the beads.

I don't use soap and water or anything.
