Topic - Kinks in tyre bead

Mark Harding - on 30 Jun 2012
I just bought a pair of Schwalbe Marathon + tyres mail order. They arrived folded up even though they are wire bead tyres. When I unfolded them the beads were kinked in several places.I can't bend out the kinks and although small they are quite definite. A search of the bike forums shows others have ahd similar experiences but there was no definitive advice about what to do.Some say it makes no difference when on the rim and inflated others say they're dangerous and shouldn't be used.Does anyone have a definitive answer?
