Default Wheel info

I recently read a piece on wheel beads . When mounting a tire there is some things you should look at on the wheel . All modern wheels have a safty bead on the rim . a small ledge where the inside of the tires bead will lock into the wheel . Things to look at is the height of that bead lock area , also how far it is set inward from the outer edge of the wheel .

Off road , or aggresive tires are to thick in the bead area to fit some stock wheels . If the tire bead area is thicker then the space between the outer edge of the wheel and the inner bead lock area you have a tire that is prone to loosing the bead at low preasure . If you have this problem more then other guys that is somthing you should take a look at .

A after market wheel may be your answer .
