Tire Seperated From Bead

Part of being a Jp product tester means we get to go to the desert and beat on stuff. We just got a new set of these sexy Pro Comp 35x12.50R15 Xtreme MT2s fresh from the mold. Our plan was to go out to the desert and keep dropping the tire pressure till we could predictably pop a bead. No such luck. We eventually got a tire to pop off the outer bead, but we did have to beat on it and it was anything but predictable. That’s the problem with blowing a bead. You never know when it might happen when aired down. One thing we can promise you is that it will happen when you least expect it. Luckily, with a little help from OMF Performance, we can avoid blown beads and bring our old beat-up Welds back from the dead.
