lol guys come on forget about it but i was` talking about this "Front Wheel: If you don't have front brakes, use two zip ties around the fork legs as an indicator. If you have front brakes, you can draw the shoes closer to the rim. The area that needs to be tightened is the section that touches the brake shoe.
B. Rear Wheel: Use the brake pads as a guide. Take the chain off so you can spin the wheel without having to turn the crank.

Tighten on the side you want to pull the rim to, loosen on where you're pulling from the same amount. If you don't the thing isn't going to go anywhere or you'll end up with a couple spokes way tight.
