Don’t let an inanimate object get the best of you.
You tried using soap and water to get that stubborn tire to seat. You tried over-inflating it … but it blew up, and now you’re deaf in one ear. You wrestled with the stupid thing but lost … and then you dropped a spectacular list of expletives and, with the most-epic discus throw, you sent the wheel and tire combo bouncing down your driveway, careening toward the busy street. There is a tool for every job. Like the PTS-1 Park Tool Tire Seater. Use it, and love it.
