    Need help getting ignitor to inflate

    Crossmax rims, stans sealant in the tire and I can't get an ignitor to hold air. I cant even get part of a bead to seal. I am supposed to go for a ride tomorrow morning. HELP

    I am using a compressor wide open!

    When I'm having difficulty getting the bead to seat, it's usually means I need to work my way around the tire and pull each bead outward toward the edge. Good luck!

    a couple quarters and go to a gas station air pump.

    I have one of those and my compressor is stronger than the gas station! I got it though. I just took a paint brush and painted some stans along the outside of the bead after I cleaned it with some soapy water and left some of the suds on the bead. The water and stans liquid helped keep enough air in to pop the bead! 3 hours to install 2 valve stems and inflate 2 tires!

    I just put mine on yesterday (Stan's Crest Rims) and didn't have a problem. There was more leakage around the rim than I had with other tires but they still have air this morning.

    I agree with watching the video on the site. Following it, I was able to inflate my Ignitors with a floor pump on WTB Laserdisk wheels and Stans Rimstrips. Had no luck prior to watching the video.

    Same setup and no problem, make sure the tire is as close to the bead as possible. Hell, I was able to set mine up with a C02 cartidge last weekend.
