tire question

Got a nice set of take offs and the rear tire had a 1/4 inch or so tear or the lip of the tire i ran them and didnt have a problem now the tire is flat. Air it up and over night its flat again. Air it up and spray some soapy water around the lip and it is leaking from there is this cause for concern?? Will the higher temps on the track help seal the gap or force more air out of the gap? Are the ok or should i get a new rear tire?

Re: tire question

Usually when you switch the tire the pressure from the air seals it, not sure if that can be the issue, if it's the tire or the wheel(was it fine before).

Re: tire question

If it is a tear in the bead, place tire in trash.

Re: tire question

,the tear is on the wall that seals inside of the wheel itself on the side of the tire if your looking at the side of the tire its on the little lip under all of the writing.

Re: tire question

I'll bore everyone a little with the technical reason to not use the tire.

1) The bead is the sealing surface to the rim.

2) The majority of forces that the tire endures are transferred to the wheel through the bead. The bead is under a lot of stress. A tear in this area can easily grow and cause an ugly failure with the tire separating from the rim.

3) The fact that the tire held air, but is not any longer indicates the tear is growing.
