Default New Tires Deformed by shipping????

I got a package yesterday with 4 new 22x11x10 tires for a friend's cart. All four tires were in a box the size that only two should fit. These things were strapped down so hard the tires looked extremely deformed. I contacted the place I got them from and they said all of their tires are like that and they should mount up fine. Anybody seen this before?

Yes...it's NOT a problem...get them mounted and air them up...be sure you use the right pressure according to the info on the sidewall of the tire.

I had the same thing with mine. Once mounted, I had a front one that was worse than the others. It drove with an out-of -round motion. It took some time driving out it out in the sun. Now its okay.

I've had many of them come in like that. It's so annoying. I've had to put pieces of wood in them to spread them out and let them sit overnight. This was in the winter when it was cold. You can sit them outside like mentioned above and it'll be fine.

The last tires I ordered and received were squished too about 1/3 of their actual size. One was so bad I had a heck of a time getting the bead set, I had to put it in the oven at 150 F for 45 minutes to loosen it up enough to get it on the rim.
