Removed Rim Guard

On the outside of the same BFG tire and wheel (this side had the rim guard removed) is an impressive sight. At 2 psi, the tire's still hanging on, but the gap is substantial-again, likely made possible by still-wet bead lube. Obviously, dirt could get in a gap like this on the trail, but without a rim protector it's also more likely to fall back out before the gap closes.
