So lst night I got my 1st tire mounted up. This is the 1st time I ever mounted a tire on a beadlock. When raceline says retorque the bolts 3 times they are not kidding. I did 5 times just to make sure. Even at 3 times there was a little movement in the bolts as I crisscrossed the torque pattern. Then I couldn't get the damm rear bead to seat down to air up. So a little google search and I found my answer. Either 1 wide tie down strap or 2 of the skinny ones. Then throw the tire back up on a bucket after you soap up the rear lip of the tire. Low and behold it took air the 1st time after that. Raceline says 25 psi max but I went up to 30 psi to help seat the rear bead. 30 psi reached and pulled the tire off the bucket and the back bead was seated. Pulled off the tie down straps and aired down to 25 psi. Now I just have 4 more to do. :suicide:

Sure why not? The spare you might not want expect as a super rare emergency. Or do you need more stuff to stuff under your porch.:thefinger:
