Spanish term or phrase: neumaticos en la llanta
From a maintenance manual for trains, document is from Chile: "Montaje de neumáticos en la llanta". All I can think of is "Assembling the tube in the tire". Does that sound right? For a train?

tyre mounting
Explanation:
Hi Catherine,

I'd simply say 'tyre mounting' as I can hardly think of mounting tyres anywhere else.

neumático = tyre
llanta = wheel

See http://www.aluminium-wheels.co.uk/alcoa_wheels_technical_dat... for example.

Follow the existing procedure and safety rules
Use only the proper tools.
Use only the appropriate tyre size.
Do not use a damaged tyre or wheel-inspect them carefully before mounting.
Check if the valve is mounted in the right way.
Apply Freylube as rim protector and tyre-mounting lubricant.
Ensure that the tyre bead is properly seated.
Do not over-inflate.
Use a protective cage during inflation.
Balancing
Since Alcoa wheels are fully machined they do not require balancing. The tyre-wheel combination, however, may need corrective weighting. Liquid balancing is not recommended. Special Hofmann designed clip-on and stick-on balance weights are suitable dependant on wheel.

Valves
Alcoa wheels are supplied with nickel or chrome-plated valves installed. Never install brass valves. Brass is not compatible with aluminium and corrosion will result. The Alcoa standard valve should never be bent to another shape. Different valve extensions may be used. If the valve is changed for any reason, apply 'Freylube' or an equivalent lubricant to the valve hole area and valve seat.

Good luck!

:O) :O)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you Alvaro! I'm afraid here in Mexico both neumatico and llanta refer to the tire ... of course it was "wheel" which i was looking for! and the pic of the train wheel cleared it up perfectly. Thank you!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  marybreen76: Could be 'Fitting tyres to the rim'. See definition of rim http://wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=rim and http://fostertire.com/glossary.htm. The definition of wheel seems to be more general http://wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=wheel

  -> Thanks Mary. Yes essentially, in this context rim and wheel would work as synonyms, though rim might me more appropriate. :O) :O)
