    Hutchinson Python Tubeless- Leaking Oil !

    Here is a stumper for all you tire guru's.

    My wife's Orbea came with Hutchison Python Tubeless Tires, mounted on Mavic Crossmax SLR's. Last week after a short urban ride, we stopped and got some coffee, when we heard a loud pop..Her rear tire blew a massive hole as seen in the pic. It was really oily and delaminated in between the tread and casing. ( No hole on inside of tire). When I got home and took the tire off, there was a good 4 tablespoons of oil on the bottom. ( Wish I took a pic, but just threw it away). Weird.

    I then put on another New Hutchison Python Tubeless, pumped it to 40 psi to seat the tire and let it sit overnight to see if it held air..No sealant was added. Now this morning I see a "oil ring" on the outside tread.

    It is still holding air, and there is no oil or any leaking on the inside of the tire..


    Any suggestions?Hutchinson Python Tubeless- Leaking Oil !-photo.jpg

    Careful mate... USA might do a military invasion in the name of Freedom in your Hutchinson tire collection...

    (Sorry, it was worth it.)

    Something went very wrong when those 2 tires (and probably a few more) were made.
