Yeah, that's happened to me before.. Dismounting a tire without lube. Gotta lube up the rubber before pulling it off, or :nuke:

If it blew out like that on the rig it was probably cut while being mounted last time and the bead was weakened.

I had a crappy 35" radial do that. Stuffed a 1.5" diameter stick in the bead on my old CJ. It was like driving over a spear. :eek:

Are there spears in CA on the trails? :rolleyes:

Unless during a real low air down you may have cut it on a rock , i see that happening only by a really shitty tire installer. Hope that wasnt you :D ,but that appears from here to ike they all have said poor installation.
I had a guy do that to 2 brand new Wintson tires for my boat trailer in Lone Pine,when we blew a tire outside Inyokern in 110 degree heat. This kid didnt know that trailer tires have big lip on the out side to keep the tire on the rim,you need to turn them upside down to install and remove them. He tore one of them before i caught it but it sealed ok and has not leaked yet.
Ya hippie do you find this on the trail or at the tire dealer?

I would raise some shit over that big guy..;)

Improper mounting/dismounting! I have torn the bead like that dismounting tires,especially old dry rotted tires.

ALWAYS USE PROPER TIRE LUBE the tire before mounting or dismounting!!!

They will not give me road hazard on the wheeler anymore, something about 22 tires since 1998!!!!:rolleyes: I took it over to were I bought them; Americas tire and they guarantee it on the manufacture warranty. Cost me $11.00 for a new tire!!!
It blew out when I was airing it up when I put it on the beadlock!! Here is what the bucket looks like that it was sitting on!!! Scared the shit out of me!!!!! Piss me off, that bucket is older then me!!!!! My Dad bought it when he bought his 1939 Oldsmobile in 1939 to wash it!!!!!
:D
