    Don't know, about three weeks ago I did a run in Boulder and had a flat on the way home, at the time I thought it was because some of my beadlock bolts were loose, but when I went to air it up today I noticed the tear.

    Well, I do have a never used spare that I will have get demounted (regular rim) and then I will have to see if I can borrow the grover again for one tire. I will just run without a spare to save weight anyway.

    I would put a boot in that one, then tube it for a spare. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Or, turn it into a coffee table. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Why not sew that one up, run a tube and use it as a spare? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I should just tube it and run it without messing with the spare. Anyone have a price for me.

    What the heck does a blue Muppet have to do with your tires? /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    That hole looks small enough that it would patch up fine and serve as a perfectly good trail spare. I had the same thing happen, tire blew out a week after a trip, only difference is that mine ended up with an 8" hole I could stick my entire hand through.

    looks just like my spare. it has 300 miles of tread wear and a nice slice in the side wall. Since mine is pretty much offroad only any more i just put a standard patch on the inside and it works fine. a boot and tube would be better if it had to get you home though.
