Shown here is a small dent/flat spot on the edge of a STANS Olympic ZTR rim, right where it hooks with the bead. It's about 15mm long (1/2 the width of my pointer finger), and indents about 1mm in.
My question is: Should I try and bend it back out to improve the connection between the rim and the bead of the tire? (will I damage the rim if I try and bend it back?) (I run tubless non-Ust Mountain Kings 2.4 if that matters), or should I just try and seat the tire as is, hoping enough stans will seal this shut?
Unfortunately I DON"T know if this has affected the seating before I had this rim rebuilt. I was having trouble sealing this rim, but I just don't if it needed more time/sealant or if it was truly a mechanical issue of not being able to seal.
Any thoughts would be great..thanks.
