I went off roading this past weekend. Well only got stuck once.
But trying to get unstuck involved LOTS of high speed wheel spinning :toothless

All the pics are with JHEW, hasn't got them up yet :shrug

Well 15PSI aparantly is too low for stock tires.
I had to pay $10 today to have a tire removed cleaned, and put back on the rim. Some how I got dirt inside without letting the air out :shrug Only clue was a handfull of weeds sticking into the tire bead. I looked harmless untill I tried to remove it, they went UNDER the bead :banghead

I would have said screw it! still holds air :toothless
But.... with my high speed antics I thought that might be an exploder/firestone roll over re-enactment

Yep, just pop the bead and get a wire brush or wheel and clean the bead on the rim and air back up. Thats all I do..

Only think I know of to stop that is to get bead locks or stay on the road.

I had a local shope remove the tire. I cleaned up both beads with a grinder and they put the tire back on
