Re: putting together new split rims, tubes & tires
The last one I purchased definitely does not have a fibrous center; however, the old gasket I replaced did. I was worried about the new gasket's ability to seal before it was even installed - it was rigid, I mean rigid and hard. $15 for a head gasket that performed poorly... I will not buy these 'new improved material' gaskets again. It seals better now but the head had to be leveled first (the old head gasket never had a problem with sealing). I guess others have not had bad experiences with these???
