FINALLY pulled the trigger on new tires

Howdy all! Yup, as title states, got some new shoes for the old girl. 27" zillas on SS212 rims. They are only 26" tall tho? The front tires are exactly 10lb heavier than my wore down stockers.. a bit more than i was hoping for tbh

Will do sir! i think i was around 4psi?? Wasnt sure where this tire is happy.

That said, i put these tires on the rims by hand ( the fronts were a PITA! Espcially when i installed the front tire on rear rim!! then had to take it off and do it over lol! the rears were on in 10 min for both!) The front tires beads seated properly around 20 psi. i et them sit for 20 min or so and checked for bead leaks. lookin good!

The rears however.. Tires went on a lot easier, but i couldnt get the beads to seat! tire says "36psi max for bead seating" well, i was at 46! and still wouldnt seat. So, i pulled schrader, and deflated. soaped the rim bead and tire and tried again. still no luck at 46psi... I pulled out the rubber mallet and started beating on the tire (prolly 10 min each) to get both sides of bead to fully seat.

Does this sound normal? This my first time ever mounting a tire/seating a bead.

I had to air over 50 psi on my old polaris 200. And that took several attempts.

They can be hard to get to seat sometimes , especially if the tires are stiff and or putting a 12 inch tire on a 8 inch rim , I use a tire bead seater , usually one try is all it takes ----a ratchet strap pulled tight around the center of the tire helps sometimes , starting fluid and a lighter works

more air might make tire taller,. but might also make for a pretty ruff ride,

I work at a Polaris/Yamaha shop. I've never cared about PSI when getting a tire to bead. Remove valve stem and air that sucker up until it seats. Probably not the safest but it's fast and effective.

I found it odd, as the front tires bead mounted inside the rim face. like this:

The rears however wanted something different:

They overhang the rim 1/4". im assuming its normal as both tires did that.

I have seen what you arr talking about with the bead being farther out , seems it is usually the rear tires that do that , if I had to guess why , I would say cause the rears are wider in my cases ..


them Zilla threads look a lot like ITP Mud LItes , I have a set of Mudzillas and like them , they are a little more aggressive
