Tire mounting


Makes sense then, my apologies.

I moderate a couple of car forums and we have a large Canadian contingent. I think most of them have adapted to wheel instead of rim terminology. I have been in Canada many times (Markham) in one of my previous roles. I love the Toronto area.

Regarding the ratchet strap trick. How tight do I get the strap on the tire?

I would do it until the tire buckles and pulls away from the bead. You may even need a second strap to put around as well to continue where the 1st one runs out.

I just noticed that there's 2 little dents on the rims, I probably made them when I installed the tire. Can that be an issue??

Should not be a problem, as long as the tire is not leaking where the dents are in wheel. Aluminum or steel ?? tire should be balanced after installing to provide a smooth ride at higher speeds.

Steel rims. Another interesting thing... One of the tire that had a flat hasn't lost a pound of pressure yet. It's a winter tire and got a flat on it last spring. I tried to find the hole with soapy water but couldn't find it. I finally set the bead with ether and got the tire to 40psi for over a week now and it's still at 40psi!!!!
