Tire mounting

Postby Chippewa93 » September 13th, 2018, 8:25 pm

Is there a trick to mounting tires. Putting on a 700x40 WTB nano. And I keep getting a slight “bulge” noticeable when you ride and get the “bump”. Rims are tubeless ready but are not set up. All my other tires mount fine

Is the bead seated at the bulge point, or dislodged slightly?

Looks to be dislodged. I tried resetting it. No luck

Deflate, lube the bead all the way around on both sides with glass cleaner (Windex) then re-inflate. It should settle in nicely after.

There's a mold line all the way 'round the tire between the bead and sidewall, you can check that the tire is properly seated by making sure that line is the same distance from the rim all the way 'round. If it isn't then cOnsumer's tip is a good one. If it is even all the way 'round you may just have a bulge in the sidewall/casing and need to warranty the tire.
