Would you be happy with this tyre?
As above – bought on here, seller silent after 2 weeks and 3 emails (inc this video).
(it was seated perfectly BTW).Posted 4 years agostanleighMember
I’ve done this as well , your tyre is not correctly seated. No worries you can ride it . To re- seat the bead , deflate & liberally add soapy water between the rim & tyre. Pump up to the max pressure ( usually around 50 psi ) & you’ll hear it pop as it sets it’s self in place. Then reduce to your normal ride pressure . Your ready to go.Posted 4 years agoPik n MixSubscriber
The Maxxis Ignitors I got from here is like that, I have been riding it (as I can’t afford to replace it, hence buying second hand tyres in the first place) with no problems.
Do you have a case? If it effects your ride then yes. To be fair though second hand tyres (especially UST) are a right lottery.Posted 4 years agochipMember
I have a conti travel contact like that from new.
The tyre also has a very slight bulge In the sidewall that would almost be invisible to naked eye if it was not directly behind large writing making the lettering distort just enough to be visible .
Tyre used to be in the front but watching it wobble from side to side annoyed me so stuck it on the back and forget about it.Posted 4 years agolank45Member

Bought tyres from shops which have been like that, have you tried pulling the kink out by flexing the tyre in the rim with no air in the tube?
Mine was not on a tubeless set up, but I sorted it by deflating the tyre and simply flexing the tyre over the rim where there was a kink to bring it back in line. The tyre I had was so bad you could see the kinks even with no air in the tyre but they had quite thick sidewalls.Posted 4 years ago
