Thanks! I can't wait till Apr 17 to go again!!!
Are you sure you weren't mistaking the "rim protector" for the bead?
I think that might be it. It was the thick band on the edge of the tire that 'sits' on the rim. When I aired up to 45psi it looked to be about 1/2" off the rim. Just wanted to know if this is normal and wasn't sure what the MAX PSI was, so good to know (50).
