    Setting tires by hand with an offset rim

    Have a new set of wheels for my cruiser weld on beadlocks come to find out the rims I bought have the correct offset but the flare part is on the outer. Normally tires would be reverse mountedsibce I welded beadlocks on they have to be front mounted. Know anyone that may have a way to mount these.

    I’ve always mounted them shallow side first. Whether that was front or rear depended on the wheel design. Not sure what is going on, maybe a pic to demonstrate.

    If I mount them shallow side that is the back of the rim then I somehow have to pry the rim over the frontside

    It's not the problem, it's the solution, that counts.
