I wasn't so much worried about the brand. Just weather to even use beads or not. And if the recommended 2oz for my Shinko would be enough for the ct?

I stayed with the 2 oz that I used in the Shinko 230's also and haven't had any problems.

How the heck ya get the old beads out of the tire. Last time I thought I would just break the top bead and suck them out. But that just turned into a big mess.

I guess I could try to rig something to suck them out the valve stem?

Cut a hole in the center of the tire and dump them out into a container.

Dough!! I knew that. Dam chemo brain made me forget,,,lol.

The thought had entered my mind to save my old tire just in case. I guess I gotta do it. What's the best method. Can it be cut with a utility knife so there's no mess?

If it's a well worn motorcycle tire you may be able to poke your finger through it.

It aint that thin,,,lol.

There's no cord showing. It's been worn out at about 6k. But it has almost 9k on it. Balder than a baby's bottom.

I feel really dumb for asking this. But is the Nexen a directional tire?
