Huffy Mountain Bike Tire Question
The never-ending story with me and bike tires continues. My aunt bought a set of mountain bikes a few years ago, and they were never rode. I was given one, and it was in perfect shape except the tires were flat from never being rode.
My grandpa pumped up the tire with his air compressor. He ended up popping the rear tire because it wasn't seated properly or was over-inflated due to the rapid inflation that the air compressor provides. So, we went to Wal-Mart and bought a "Hutchinson" Inner Tube for the tire. Pumped it up, and it works.
However, yesterday I had to put more air in that tube. The maximum on the tire is 50 PSI and I pumped it up to 40 PSI. Is this okay? Anyways, the real problem is that the tire bead isn't even all the way around. In some spots of the tire you can almost see the bottom of the bead (where it should meet the rim), and in other spots you can just see the top of the bead. Anyways, it's pretty warm outside (100[SUP]o[/SUP]F everyday) and I was wondering if I should worry about this bead popping off the tire because like I said you can pretty much see the bottom of the bead.
I'm sorry I don't have any photos right now.
