I just tried to fit another new tufo XC4 to replace one with a cut and after fitting the tyre this was one straight on the rim, was more to one side than centered.

Ok, was a defect, luck me I had another new one.

I fitted the second one and the tube was centered with the rim but the thread was a little out, the thread is almost a centimeter more to one side than the other.

Who fitted before tubular tyres with tufo tape knows that you just center the tyre with the tape, inflate a little and pull the plastic to glue the tyre, easy process.

I'm at the moment waiting on a answer from Tufo itself but did you guys ever had a similar problem?
