    Well.....I ran it up to 125psi, and still not seated. Although one side did completely seat, the other hasn't yet. I'm going to get another tire and try it. This one has developed a wrinkle in the sidewall, and I'm no longer confident that it will be ok if it ever does seat. I definitely don't want another accident for my wife, and me to be the one who caused it.
    Thanks to everyone who chimed in.

    I did, and it made me wonder when I saw this: "111 THOUSAND miles 7-23-14"
    Charlie: what's the score today?
