Can you mount a tire with a torn bead?

This damage normally happens when the tire is being dismounted. The bead of the tire has steel chords inside it so it can't stretch. To mount the tire the rim has a narrow spot in the middle. If the rim is clean and the tire is not severely damaged it should be just fine.

Also asked, can you repair the bead on a tire?

A tire bead, the part of the tire that seats it securely onto the rim, must be air tight or leaking and tire failure will occur. In all instances of tire bead repair, if the cords or the tire bead are cut or sliced, they cannot be fixed and the tire must be replaced.

Likewise, what does it mean to break the bead on a tire? A bead breaker is a tool used for separating tires from rims. The inner-most diameter of the tire that interfaces with a wheel is called the Tire Bead. The bead retainer is a bump like feature that prevents the tire bead from slipping inward on the rim and losing the air seal.

Correspondingly, what causes tire bead damage?

Bead chafing can occur when mounting a tire on a dirty or mismatched rim, or when the tire is in an overloaded or under-inflated condition. A bent or deformed bead usually occurs when the tire is improperly stored, or excessive stress is applied to the bead area during mounting.

How much does it cost to re bead a tire?

If you bought the tire from the shop doing the repair they usually do it for free. If not expect to pay $10-$20.
