    I've heard of these but never seen one in action. I would have to be on the other side of a concrete wall playing with all that pressure. As always, be careful!

    I've got a neighbor that used one of those on a lawn mower tire of mine. One minute its a flat rubber band around my wheel and the next instant there is a woooooosh and a fully inflated tire there. I think they're filled with magic!

    Thats just about the same thing as the tire guy used to fix my big ol' dump truck tire at work. Filled that sucker up in milliseconds. I'm with Fort Payne...I think they're filled with magic and unicorns.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    So do you go around the tire with it and hit it a few times? Looks like it just smashes the tire up on there.

    The ATV tire has a different set of issues. Bead seating gimmicks are intended to assist in seating tubeless tires which already fit their existing rims but need a solid "hit" of air to ease seating the bead. Non-issue for us. We have an inner tube for that.



    The problem with ATV and automotive tires is that the bead area is slightly smaller in diameter than an equivalent sized motorcycle tire.



    They have to be allowed to stretch naturally. Forcing them in that fashion will only rip them to pieces.



    Time and patience.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    New toys rawk. It'd almost be worth ripping up one of Ronnydog's tires to see it in action
