    How to make tires round again??

    Hey, I jut got some new tires off of the internet, and as you know, they like to shove big things in little boxes. The tires got all warped and out of shape because of this. How can i fix the tires so they are round/flat/regular again??

    no, the beads are straight, but the tread is crooked and the sidewalls are bent in a little bit.

    Hopefully you didn't get a reject tire. Sometimes we see tires where the tread isn't straight due to some problem in manufacture.. If that's the case you're basically stuck with it.

    no, if you mean the tire is unproportional, they aren't, i am pretty sure that it is from them being stuffed in a 12X10 box.

    As long as the bead isn't kinked, just mount it and pump it up. They twist them to fit in smaller boxes and save on shipping.
