    Has anyone done this using the bias type rim and the magnizium run flat? I am having big time trouble with this. I mounted four 6 plys with no problem. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I don't have the 10 ply's, but i'm curious what the problem is. I had no problem installing my 42 TSL's.

    I couldn't get the ring to set. I think the 10 ply has thicker beads and wouldn't allow it to seat. I got it to seat now, but it won't hold air. I think now I need a new oring. The old one was kinda stretched out. I will try to find a new one and start over.

    o-well. I stripped 4 of the bolts and nuts too. So I need to order some new ones of those and I will get the o-ring at the same time.

    Did you measure that PVC for me?
