No offense, but if yer referring to squishing the bike's Dtube - DO NOT DO THAT!

The only thing that provides a tube strength is it's shape, yer tempting Murply with that 'un fosho

As you've crimped it on the sides - it has little lateral integrity now, fortunately that's not where the stress is... usually. Had you done the same but top and bottom - the stresses of normal riding could have caused the tube to fail by now.
