Exclamation CRF50 Back Tire Wobbly/Crooked, HELP!!!!

I just got some Pirellis Street tires on the 50 and when I went to ride it, the new tires felt like they were warped or wobbly. I put it on the stand and spun the tires. Sure enough the tires are all lopsided and wobbles left and right when the rim is spinnin. Could they be warped or any suggestions on fixin them? THANKS

Who put the tires on? the bead may not be set right. Take a look and make sure it's just the rubber wobbling and not the actual rim.

Cycle gear put it on. I noticed that the bead around the tire dips under one section of the rim pretty bad and is offsettin the tire. The rim is fine its just the tires bead keeps slippin under the rim lep in certain sections

I tried to deflate and mess with the bead and try to air it up again but it keeps doin it, like the rubber is warped and messed up?!?!?

Sounds like the bead didnt seat on the lip of the rim. Also check all the spokes and make sure they are tight, once one starts gettin loose they all do and you will get crazy wobbling. I would take it back up there and tell them they screwed in up and it was riding fine before they put it on. HOH FTW!

Try this, deflate the tire and apply soapy water to the inner lip on the rim and inner lip on the tire and re-inflate. Purposely over inflate the tire to try and get that bead to set again. But don't go over inflate too much. You may get lucky and it sets right. Then let air out to your regular air pressure.

If that doesn't work call up cycle gear and tell them about your problem and that your not happy about it. They SHOULD fix the problem one way or the other.

OR you can try the above, see if it works. If not ride it around for a few hours and see if that helps or if it gets any better.


just my .02

Hope i could help.

I took it to Cycle Gear. Without me sayin a word, I showed them the Rim/Tire, Left the tire at their feet, showed them my Muscles then ripped the door off on the way out. They called and said it would be ready ASAP lol
