So I finally got a new Conti 5000 TL to replace the sidewall blowout on my last tubeless tire.
I get it mounted... and it wobbles. WTF?
There is a line on the tire just above the rim and it measure 2mm above the rim on most of the tire but 3mm for maybe a foot of the circumference.
I don't seem to notice it much on the road.
Bad tire? The beads SEEM to be mounted perfectly and it's hold air fine with just over 1.5 ounces of sealant.
Rim is perfectly true.
I wonder if the tire will just break in and even out over time or what.
likely... it's not beaded up. here's the dirty secret: there's scant harmony among standards. some wheel and tire makers manufacture to ETRTO, others to ISO, some have proprietary bead hooks on their wheels, some are now using straight-wall beadless designs.
you need to overinflate your tire so that it pops up. then take air out. why? because not all tires easily go on all rims.
