Link12 I flipped one today. Bead doesn't look great but isn't leaking so far.

squamch I've found that roof repair caulking is a great way to seal up shitty beads.
Your tire guy will hate you, but it works great.

If so, some of the tire bead sealer helps fill in those bites.

Tire bead flip?

I have 15/42-15 tsl sx2's on race line 15x8 beadlocks. They have been mounted since 2010. I want to flip them around to put the like new sidewalls on the outside. My question is with the bead that has been clamped on the outside for so long ever seal up on the inside of the wheel when flipped? Anyone have experience with this?
