Gaps

Look closely at the tire and rim and you'll see large gaps at seven and nine o'clock where the rim guard on this Krawler has moved away from the rim. Getting the tire this tweaked was accomplished with a winch, but similar side-loading takes place on the trail. Despite what it looks like, and perhaps because it was freshly mounted, this tire held air down to 2 psi, complete with a rim guard, but using another wheel could've made all the difference.
