Hopefully someone has some good advice.

You want it to pop? Spray it with starting fluid and throw a match lol. Don't do it as it's dangerous but Google it. They do it in super cold climates all the time.

Agree with Backwoods-Bomber......looks seated to me. So what do you think? Pretty impressive knobs eh?

10-12lbs max for the back if you're going to ride in the dirt, but for sure ride on asphalt to "rough" it up a bit for better traction.

As stated above it looks seated. I had one that would not seat and I let sit overnight and it was seated in the morning.

The first side looks seated nicely, but couldn't tell the 2nd side from the lighting.

I changed my tire last night and I usually deflate it, spray a LOTS and LOTS of silicone spray around and inside the entire edge. Keep pumping it up and it should seat. Then wipe off the lubricant mess.

Inflate to 70 pull the valve stem let it go to zero, soap edge, reinstall stem inflate to 70. Sometimes the tire needs to relax to move. Repeat as many times as necessary
