    tire seperating from the rim (tubeless)

    My tire has separated from the rim right where the valve is. I have some 8001 which I use for Tubulars. Would this be fine to glue it back?

    Thanks!

    Impatient much? You posted, waited 25 minutes and then whined LOL.

    What rim?
    What tire?
    Is the rim dented in that spot?
    How old is the Tire?
    What setup? (stans, ghetto, true UST)

    My recommendation would be to get a new tire.

    Not sure. I bought it from SMT. Anyone know?

    It recently get very cold, very fast. And the bike was in a non heated room. Could this do it?

    it's got to be stan's or ghetto then. As far as the cold, it's possible that caused it but at this point it doesn't matter since it has already happened. Pop the tire off and inspect the bead for deformities. If you don't see anything wrong put the tire back on add some stans sealant and inflate it. If it happens again get a new tire.

    Don't glue it though. That would be a royal pain to change out the tire later on.

    After further research, the ring that goes on the valve is where its leaking. So what do I do now?
