Default Re: Tire or rim problem?? I need suggestions

I had that happen with thorn proof tubes on one bike with 26" wheels. The thicker rubber didn't seem to 'blossom' inside the tire like thinner tubes and hold the tire despite high psi. I didn't want to forgo the protective no flat aspect so I ended up going with just a thin swipe of craft bond around both beads of the tire where it meets the rim and it stopped the slippage.
