Will this cause a problem?

So I just put a brand new GLH on and when I started to inflate it close to desired PSI the side wall was bubbling out a little bit. I deflated it and inspected the tire to find a little section of the bead separated. Will this cause a blowout? It was clearly enough for me to notice with it inflated...Photo

If the side wall is pushing outward, yes. I wouldn't trust that. Contact whoever you bought or ordered this from and tell them what happened and see what they can do.

It isn't supposed to do that, looks like a factory defect.

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.

If the bead is hanging out, its messed up. Im sure you could ride it for a bit, but it would be pointless.

Damn...
Got another one on the way from Animal (it's a one-day ship so I'll have it in time to ride this weekend) and I guess I'm gonna exchange the defective one with Dan's. Don't need another midnight blowout scaring the shit out of me.

Are you installing tires with a makeshift tire lever, such as a butter knife or screwdriver

All I had was a chisel so I wrapped it in electrical tape and used that. No way that caused the problem though...









...just kidding. I use my hands as far as I can then use plastic tire levers for the last little bit. When I took the tire back off there's a few inch long strip of the bead that's half missing where that split was. Not sure how I didn't notice on installation but I inspected for any type of residue or remnants that would imply I somehow ripped off a chunk installing it and none was to be found. I always wanna make sure it's not my fault before I exchange parts!

More people need to be like you and take accountability haha. Also, did you order another GLH? Cause those are arguably some of the best tires out there

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Yeah I got another GLH. Defects happen. No big deal. Animal rules and this is the first issue I've ever had with anything of theirs after years of dealing with them
