Just changed my paddle today to my dirt tire and somehow the steal belting around the bead busted and riped out of the tire a 1/2'' or so. What should I do and how did this happen. I was thinking of cutting it with the dremal and hopeing for the best has anyone had this problem??

I would cut it out, ride it a bit then inspect it. Those sidewalls are pretty strong.
