Tire Seal Breaking

Has anyone had issues with the seal breaking on newly installed tires? I had 275/35/19's (BFG KDW's) installed on 19" x 9.5" RTR wheels and had two separate tires go flat in two days. The leaks were very quick and the escaping air was loud and obvious. Once I fill them back up with air, they are fine again.

Re: Tire Seal Breaking

Not something I have heard of, but I know I would be calling the shop where you had them installed and having a nice long talk with the manager , sounds like a bad install to me, not to mention the danger of the situation. I hope you weren't driving it when they went down. I would see about having the shop replace the ones that went flat at their expense.

Tire hasn't softened with driving yet and the bead is really stiff. Should solve itself in a couple weeks

If the tire guy put clip on weights on the rim it will cause some tires to have a slight leak untill the tire gets low enough to unseat the bead.

Ok well there you go. If you do any "real" driving clip on weights are a NO GO! Especially if you have lower profile tires.

Re: Tire Seal Breaking

I havn't heard of this happening but I do change tires on the side for motorcycles. Just a stupid question, is it leaking from the valve core? Might need to check and see if it is. You can replace the core without replacing the whole vavle if is it.

Re: Tire Seal Breaking
