    Rubber coming out tire

    I have no idea where or how it got like this. Does anyone have an idea? I was riding and started to here flat tire sound. Pulled over and it was flat. Filled up with air at a gas station to try to make it back home. I thought I had a hole that needed to be plugged. Took the tire off and saw that the air was coming from where that rubber is coming out the tire which is on the backside of the tire. I wanted to ask on here before I attempt to shove it back in with a screw driver or something which Im not sure if that will solve the problem. When I roll the tire it also sounds like something is rolling around in the tire. I guess thats not a big deal but is there something I can do with that rubber or should I take it to tire shop without messing with it?

    I went to go look at it again and it does not look bent to me. The pic is a little deceiving. Jus because the rubber is away from the rim makes it look bent in that area in the picture.

    Take the one rim to a GOOD rim shop and have 'em check it out. I had a kinda similar problem. Mine was a bad tire, and it was even less obvious than yours (not saying that yours is for sure a bad tire) Mine held air, but the ride was crap! New tire = problem solved

    Re: Rubber coming out tire

    I bought this tire about 5 months ago. I drive the truck mainly just on the weekends and rarely during the week. I tried checking the air pressure at least once every couple weeks. Im not a rough driver and dont even remember hitting any hard pot holes or anything else. Yet this happened. Crappy tire? Probably so.

    i'd say you have a bad tire if you don't drive it much
