Well i gooped my rear tire 3 times.First time i didnt use enough goop and second time i use too much,but i nailed it on the third try .It is holding up real well with 3 packs thru it and no sign of bead break at all.Last try i gooped a small 3mm bead in each wheel bead and then pulled tire on without smearing it across the insert.I use goop for everything and i know how messy it can be,but just the right amount and it stays put til tire is mounted.Thanks Guido
