Rubber Peeling from Wire

Posted on
  • Morning all

    I was changing an inner tube and noticed that the rubber is peeling from the bead of the tyre; I had quite a big blow out on this (please see attached photos). Hope it's not a daft question but does this make the tyre unsafe to use?

    Thanks in advance

  • Yes. That's the part that keeps the clincher seated on the rim, once it comes off you'll continue to experience blowouts there.

    Also, is it just rubber, or does that part contain a wire as well?

  • Still got the receipt?

  • Thanks for the replies. It's just rubber that's peeling off, no wire that I can see.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any receipts for the tyres.

  • Can't quite place the character,
    was he associated with Prop Joe?

  • You've lost me ?!

  • It's a pun that I now can't unsee. Here's Prop Joe.
