I might caution you to be careful with "just add more air" as this morning I blew up a Kumho Solus 195/65-15. I had prepped the wheel, sanding it down, and managed to spoon on the tire, but no bead success with commercial tire lube, baby powder, silicon spray, or PAM cooking oil. Two days in the sun (though smokey here due to the local fires). No go. Took it to the local tire shop and re relubed it. No go. We put it on the no limit air compressor, and eased it up. When it blew, we were 10 feet away (at my suggestion, luckily) and though it rang our ears nobody was hurt. I cannot tell you what this would have looked like if I was at home, bending over the tire holding the air fill, but it would not be pretty. Take precautions when you up the pressure! The explosion brought people running, but no 911 call needed.

It gets worse... I purchased another car tire - this one from Walmart. Got it on the wheel as before, but it would not bead up. After previous experience, I put it on a trailer 20 feet away after lube. I decided to stop at 105 pounds, and did. The tire blew out, and this time on only one side. It lifted the trailer tongue into the air, put a set in the spring, and blew the tire and wheel into a tree OVER my shop roof. It would have killed me if I was standing over it. Gave up and mounted a nice Shinko with 45 pounds. Again, caution called for. IF you cannot do this with a remote setup, don't do it. I just did a thousand miles on the VTX1800 with double dark side this week, but it looks like the sabre will stay motorcycle tires. Phoey!
