- Put the wheel back on the bike. Once all the pieces are reattached, press the wheel back into its socket on the bike. Make sure you have a tight fit, then press the quick-release lever down to lock the wheel in place. 
How do you center the front wheel of a bike?
The wheel should be centered between the fork blades. To adjust wheel centering, open the quick release, move the wheel either left or right until the wheel appears centered, then close the quick release. For non-quick release wheels, loosen the axle nuts and center the wheel, then tighten the nuts fully.
