Fitting tyres on rims

The Ghost

Recommended Posts

I have managed to get my tyres onto my new rims, with a tube inside; the problem is that the tyre is sitting nicely in the bead groove on one side, it is sitting deeper in the rim on the other side. I tried to lower the pressure and manipulate it with my hands, but I cant get it to be even.


Please help.

Generally, yes. But try to soap the bead first. That'll help it to slip on to the right pozzie. Soap = sunlight...

mtb tyre? I had real skinny conti slicks years ago that would NOT seat correctly without sunlight liquid and rapid over-inflation at the petrol station. the bang gave the petrol jockeys a kick ;)
