It’s been about three weeks ago since I last rode my bike and today I noticed some weird looking bumps on my tires. I removed them from the rim and look what I found…WTF Maxxis!

Let me guess, UST tires with stans sealant?
If you go on the stans forum, it's a common problem. My dad just pokes a small hole in his and it fixes it, but they usually come back.

Yeah, I was using Stan's. How can this happen?

I would guess the sealant/air has worked it's way in between the different layers. If you have enough travel up front, you shouldn't even feel it.

That pool looks nice btw.

Seen that a few times, luckily none of my tires though. For some reason the sealant makes the tire separate. You may be able to use an internal patch if you feel like trying to get more life out of that tire.

That's hilarious....I'm going to try and ignore this huge bulge in my tire by throwing a softer spring in my fork and letting it all work itself out. :thumbsup:

What tire compound are you running?

I heard Stan's messes tires up if you leave em sitting around for a while...I hope mine are OK at home.

I have run probably 10 Maxxis UST tires with Stan's sealant and have never had that problem. Might be a defective tire.

That right there is the reason that pretty much EVERY tire maker says not to use sealant, unless it's their own.
We all do it anyway, but there is always that risk.
How is this for a scary thought: ....what if that delamination happened during a very high speed run, on a turn with some real consequences?
