where as the new one says, "Made in China," so who knows if it's even round?
All great if you want to pay the premium. I get tires 40 to 60% less than what local dealers charge and an hour of my labor to change them at my convenience. My tire machine has paid for itself 10X over.
I have a box that has a piece of glass on one side . Placing the tyre in the box and setting it in the Sun for the solar gain results in a nicely warmed tyre. then use the zip tie method to mount the tyre over the rim . Warmed up and stretched slightly , the tyre almost seats its self . Dusty
I'll give it rest for now. Ordered one of those "clip-lock" air chucks which will certainly help. I do think the tire might be a bit undersized. The bead seats about two-thirds of the way around on both side of the tire, but the remaining bead just pulls down tight into the drop center and won't budge. It's a 120/70-17, but one would swear it's too small by the fight it's giving me.
What type of tire machine do you have? Would you buy it again? If not, what would you buy?
I think thereís a little confusion here. The issue was not that he couldnít get the tire to take air and inflate, it was the tire in one area would not seat, or ďpop outĒ if you will. Putting a belt around the center of the tire would do nothing for this issue.
Nope! The OP only needs more pressure to get the bead to pop/seat.

I like the idea of a solar box tire warmer, also the idea of leaving the tire in the car. What is the zip tie method of mounting a tire?
Warm tires are easier but again if you use the right technique its not a problem hot, warm, cool, cold or freezing. I've changed tires for fellers in the dead of winter who tires were left in the car trunk at sub freezing temperatures for day or more until they could get here. Bring the tire/wheel down to the basement and change them out.
The zip tie method is simply using about 5 or 6 large zip ties thru the tire pulled very tight expanding the inner circumference enough so the tire will slip over the rim . Really easy with tubeless , although I have managed it with tubes also . The reverse can be used to dismount a tire , but fishing the zip tie under the tire is kinda tricky . Dusty
