When I mounted this tire I used PB Blaster as lube and cleaned the bead area of corrosion. I specifically did not use soapy water to prevent future corrosion. Anyways 2 years later this wheel's bead area looks terrible. Corrosion everywhere. How can this happen?
I attempted to remove the tire and found this - a hole or flaw in the tire that bubbles up even with the tire bead broken (no air pressure in the tire).
Another forum has suggested I replace this tire and common sense tells me that is the right way to go.
