    hi when you lads fit new tyres, do you blow them up till they pop on the rims so that they are seated right as on a trials bike (motor) or just inflate to your running pressure

    many thanks rob

    If I’m running a tube then I just inflate to running pressure and check the bead is sat in the rim correctly.

    If it’s tubeless then it has to pop to ensure it is seated correctly and won’t leak.

    No, I tend to just do about 3-4 psi and then give it a good press around the bead to make it even and keep going until i get to around 30 psi and then deflate to running pressure
