Default Re: flat tires on a motorized bicycle

from some research it is wire bead tires that will do this, i have also turned a tire inside out in the past and never had a problem, from what i have been reading i just got lucky the other time, what happened was when i tuned the tire back to normal it was twisted and the wire bead rolled up so their was no way possible to mount it. i spent a couple hours trying to fix and finally gave up after researching a fix which i could not find. the tire is now in the dumpster and just ordered a new on that should be here in a week or so, personally i will not chance turning them inside out ever again, ruining a tire is bad but the wait to get a new one is even worse
