mounting a tire... - July 24, 2011, 10:47 AM

I just finished putting a take-off on my rear rim, but the tire is not sitting in the rim correctly... It has a "dent" on each side of the tire where its not being pushed out. I put air in it hoping it would fix itself with the air pressure, but no dice, its still deformed.

The tire is fine, somehow I must be missing something on mounting the tire correctly...

I will put a pic or 2 up in a min... any help is greatly appreciated.

this is how it sits now, with the air let out of it... When I try to get rid of that deformation, it just moves to another part of that side of the tire.
There is one of those on each side.

The bead isn't seated yet. Keep inflating it.

You will hear 2 pops - 1 for each side.

Before you just fill it with air take some soapy water and spray it in the area that is not seating. Then air it up, the soapy water will make it slip easier so you do not have to fill it with as much air. It can be potentially dangerous over inflating a tire above max air pressure when you may not have to.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

This. Also before mounting , you can let the tires sit in the sun and then do the above. makes it even more butter going on.

Use windex not soapy water please. And you can run 110 psi into it. Also it helps to remove the valve stem core to get more volume of air but you have to have an air chuck that does not need a core to work. Also bounce the tire while inflating it.

Because it takes longer to evaporate than windex. Which can lead to a tire rotating on the rim. Windex evaps within minutes.

That's what I figured it had to do with, leaving residue/water within the tire on the rim, cool, carry on....
