wire beads i dont fold. after parcel taping the tyres together in a couple of places to secure them, i just wrap in heavy duty black cling film type stuff (i have access to the work warehouse packaging). simples.

The way to fold a steel bead tyre is to fold in three not two. Push in two sides at 10 and 2 o' clock, then the last one with your knees. It will flip and spring into a neat coil without twisting the bead.


Care to demonstrate?


This is how you fold bandsaw blades,its how i do mine.
If i was sending wire beaded id prefer not to fold them this way because as Cyfa says it does[or can rather] put a kink in the wire.
If that happens you can easily straighten it by bending it back on itself.Fitted and with 50 odd psi in it would do the rest.

Only prob with sending wire whole is cost.means a bigger parcel so they charge you a bit more.
