Question about Phil & Teds E3 Jogger
It's brand new and it has car tyre sized valves for the air. I brought it around to the local garage to inflate the tyres and two of them have developed bulges in the sides of the tyres where they are kind of coming out of the rim. I made sure not to over-inflate the tyres, the maximum P&T recommends is 22 PSI and they are only inflated to 20 PSI. Why are there bulges? Can I get rid of them?
It sounds like one of a couple possible problems:
*Perhaps the tires have been overinflated previously and have edged out of the rim. In that case, the all the air will need to be let out of the tires, the edges of the tires edged back into the rim and then the tires inflated to slightly below the maximum pressure.
*You indicated that it was new, so the suggestion above may not apply. If you used the gauge at the garage that is connected to the air supply, it is likely not calibrated proper and the tires are, in fact, overinflated - in which case the first suggestion should be followed.
*If it's not one of the first two and the stroller is in fact new, then you should return it and ask for a replacement. There is a third possible problem . . .
*If the stroller has been stored in the heat, it's possible that tubes may have "stuck" to the tires internally and are placing pressure unevenly. You can tell if the tires have tubes by letting the air out and pressing on the valve stems. If they move in, which they probably will, then there are tubes. If you can remove the valves from within the stem and evacuate all the air, the tubes may adjust and you can reinstall the valves into the stems and air the tires up again.
