I bought 2 new skins from Amazon rated for 130 mph and only 90 bucks tax and shipping, for the front of the MG and now that I have matching rims I can't wait to see them on the car. I drug out my tire machine which Im now making money every time I use it. It paid for itself already. Im about 90 bucks into the green on that purchase. So i put the tires on and the first one I had a genius idea to spray silicone on the bead so it don't rip in any way. Bad Idea!!!!!!. I couldn't get that tire to pop for nothing. Grant it the compressor only gets 130 lbs at peak and it don't last long so even the air blast on the tire machine really doesn't work very well with my air volume and pressure. i gave up and moved on to the next one. I left this one alone and wrestled a bit but it popped up eventually. PHHHHeeewwww man I was sweating and tired already. My kid pops his head in the garage and he joined my silicone tire popping event and no success. I took the tire off and wiped down the bead with brake clean to get rid of the silicone. We tried again and nothing. Just as I was about to give up I waited for the compressor to peak and i gave it the air blast and it popped for me. What a battle. I wish I had one of those bead expanders to not have to work so hard to get the tires up on the bead and rim. These tires were short and narrow so they didn't fit the bill for an easy mount like a big 60 series tire. But I won the battle and a good feeling when I shut the lights and locked up.
