    Bonti Mustang, RaRa issue

    I can't get RaRa's into the bead. The tire keeps tucking and sealing against the inside of the wheel. The tire airs up, just crooked on the wheel, with or without tubes. It's hard to describe, I guess the bead is rolling under?

    The wheels have had other tires tubeless, the Ralphs are new, and mount fine on other rims.

    2012 Bonti Mustangs TLR, Bonti rim strips, plenty of soap, air up with a hand pump tubeless but crooked.

    35 w/o a tube. 40+ with a tube.

    One has been mounted perfectly on another wheel for 3-4 hours and it almost fits the Bonti now.

    I should just sell them and get my wife some Crests

    Can you wiggle the tire by hand to seat the bead? I've had this happen before where a stubborn part of the bead wont pop and you will have to wiggle the tire back and forth at that section to work the bead up and over the hook.

    Only ever had this happen with tubed tires but I imagine the same could work for tubeless if the tire is already holding air
