Bridgestone Blizzak will not mount!
So my newly acquired 6 came with a decent set of snow tires. The previous owner was having the tires put on the OEM rims and replaced yearly. I can't connect with the idea of paying to do something multiple times and don't mind the look of steel rims for winter.
I hunted for and found a set of rims to fit and had the tires installed. Three went on without a fuss and one wheel will not sit properly. That is, the bead will not find its way to the right spot in a section of about 10". This tire was taken off and tried on the other rims and it is the tire that is presenting the problem.
Two shops have been struggling with no success yet, although one is still trying. Anyone else have this problem? What did you do?
Tires are 215/50/r17 on 17" rims x 6.5 with 5 - 114.3mm steelies.
