I found out im not a tire guy. My stock 2018 bike tire was bald around 3,000 miles so I got a new bridgestone trail wing TW22. I got the stock tire off fair enough and got the new one on. Went to air it up,,,, and leaked. took it back off part way to get the tube out and I pinched it twice within an inch of each pinch. Got a patch kit and patched it. I could not get it back on the second time. Loaded it up and brought to a shop. Guy said the patch I put on wouldn't hold and I put another hole near the valve stem. So I will have to be a pull it off and drop it off guy, from now on.
I think my new bead breaker will make a good kayak anchor, and the 3 shiny tire spoons can go in the camper utincil droor for people to ask ( what are these for)
lineman1234, You are simply inserting your tire iron too far under the bead & over the rim as you are levering the bead ON. So the tip of the iron is compressing the tube against the rim in the 'drop-center'.
I tell new owners/mechanics that it is best to use 3 hooked irons to Remove the beads and one should only Need 1 flat tipped iron to Install the beads.
Work only 2-3 inches at a time, keep the opposite side compressed into the drop-center and only insert the 1 flat tip till it just slips over the metal rim lip.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
Thank you. I tried again today when I got my 2 new tubes.
Baby powdered a new tube n got her in. Windexed the heck out of tire every move. 3 eighteen inch tire irons and I stopped before I messed it up again.
It wont play nice the last 8 inches of going on. It's a stock size 70 on 30 off tubeless tire. Bridge stone.
