    Folding wire beaded tires.

    I have to ship two wire beaded mountain bike tires in a box. Can someone direct me to a link that shows me the proper way to "fold" them. I don't want to kink the bead.

    Yeah, that doesn't exactly work with studded mtb tires. I just sort of put them in a figure * and stuck them in the box. Hopefully all is well.

    I assume you mean figure 8 (that shift key can be a little tricky).

    That will work.
    Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...
