This Hutchinson Spider Tubeless Light tire has been used for a few months with about a scoop of Stan's for puncture prevention. Then I took it off the bike to mount other tires so I flushed most of the liquid that remained. Tonight I was getting ready to mount it again but there was a small white deposite inside the tire... well, so I thought. I pulled and it was a very elastic rubber feeling that pulled away from the rest of the tire.

I'm now wondering what it is. A thin layer of Stan's sealant that is all over the inside of the tire or a layer of the casing that is delaminating from the tire? Is this tire toasted? the thread is still in great shape, it was a front tire but I was going to put it as a rear now...

I just had a UST Spider give way on the trail. Neither the mechanic nor myself could figure out what was wrong. At first I thought the rim needed a good truing, but it was fine. Then when we put the tire back on it pulled the rim outta whack. I've had them for about a year, and have run Stans No Tubes the whole time. I swear by that product, so I can't tell you one way or another. But I am taking that tire off completely tomorrow and will be looking for the same affect as yours. We both think something bad happened to that tire.

Had a friend that had that same problems, seems that the rubber used on certain batches of the Spyders have an adverse reaction to Stans.

In my friend's case he got a replacement tire from Hutchinson and was told not to use Stans on their tires and use their sealant instead.
