- Buckled tyre after puncture?!
I pinch flatted (tubless) on a long rocky descent so I put a tube in and carried on. Punctured again, looks like a hole from a thorn maybe in the tread area, I repaired using a puncture repair kit and then punctured again (looks like another thorn type hole) but I was really close to home I decided to just keep pumping tyre up, I never ran it completely flat however I was pretty low at times (it was road only from here on)
got home and fixed the tyre, added more sealant and pumped up. Noticed the tyre/wheel was buckled so I removed the tyre and balanced the wheel, put the tyre back on to see that the tyre is heavily buckled!
ive tried putting the tyre on the rim 180 degrees round (taking note of where the buckle was) and it followed
is it possible I’ve buckled the tyre!!? It’s a minion ssPosted 1 year ago
Out of pure desperation I pumped I up to 55psi. It didn’t explode or help either. I put my fingers in my ears when I did it lol. Like I say I removed the tyre and put it back on 180 degrees different but exactly the same buckle appeared on the other side!
It does pop onto the rimPosted 1 year agokiksyMember
The Maxxis “wib-wobs”.

It seems to happen to me if I land a jump a bit sideways, but Boxxer on here managed to do it just doing cutties.
Don’t think there’s a fix for it, but I did manage to improve my DHF a bit by pumping it up to 60psi and leaving it overnight.Posted 1 year agocarlosMember

Is that through schoolboy error and not checking the tyre before fitting the tube?? I know a few people that have done that
Its not uncommon to have damaged the sidewall. Over the years I’ve had a Conti MK, Bonty XR4, Spesh Purg and an On One CM do this. Its as if the side wall threads have either broken or distorted enough to allow the tyre to deform, creating a twitch in the tread but the wheel runs true.
If you are running it on the rear its not so bad, but as above prob best to bin it and get something else/another onePosted 1 year agomilky1980Member
Had that happen on a few tyres from different manufacturers, not uncommon really as everyine above proves! Had to bin a few Conti’s, Bontys and Maxxis tyres due to it. managed to warranty on e of the Conti’s after it did it on a landing and put me OTB and broke a few ribs. The others all did it when they were pretty worn so just replaced them.Posted 1 year agosimons_nicolai-ukMember
Not just Maxxis. I’ve been running Rubber Queens, now Trail Kings on both mine and Katies bikes for some years now. We had one batch of 3 tyres (bought at the same time) that all buckled like this. Not had any go before or since. Put the first two down to bad luck/riding but when the third went I got it replaced under warranty,Posted 1 year ago
