A'ight, thanks all. I will take good look at the tire bead when I get home, I can certainly inflate the hell out of it and pop it in if that's all it is. Didn't really even consider that.
It's not "more agressive tread" as these are the same brand / model of tires I always run, I'm used to them. But thanks.
Go forth, wander aimlessly, explore, have adventures and shit...
