Again, dont wanna teach you to suck eggs, but are they 100% the tubeless versions?
See the bit with tle on the end
Send them back. Not worth the risk
TLE = Tubeless Literally Explodes
TLE = Tubeless Lies Extensively
TLE = Tubeless Leak Everywhere
TLE = Tube Life Extended
TLE = Tacky Latex Everywhere
TLE = Trendsetters Love Explosions
I would say mostly true.
I've got a Maxxis tyre that's leaking along a small section of the bead. I've inspected the tyre pretty thoroughly and can't find any holes or rips, there's just a slight bobble in the bead where the leak is occurring so I suppose this is the cause. Is there anything I can do to get it to seal properly?
Is the rim still straight?
It looks straight, but does seem to be exhibiting the same kind of symptoms that a dinged rim would present.
I've left in horizontal for 24 hours and it seems to have sealed up now, we'll see if it stays that way when riding.
If it does leak again…
Mark where the leak is, unseat the tyre and move it round a couple of inches. If the leak moves it’s the tyre if it stays the same it’s the rim. Moving it may just fix it.
But logos and valve holes will be misaligned.
Straight to anti
Yeh. Horrid thought.
