Default Weird Tire Shape

I had strange results after switching my rear tires. My sprintcar would pull one way and the opposite way after changing sides on the rears . Upon watching the tire shapes, using full throttle one tire would balloon up while the other would not--change sides and same tire would balloon the good one didn't.
So I checked my other DE Racing rears and a similar thing--one tire would balloon and the other wouldn't.
Can Anybody figure out why??

One tire is likely able to spin more freely due to loading of the car and losing traction in a corner. The more it does it, the more the rubber stretches allowing it continue to balloon. Also, are you using tire sauce on your tires and do you apply it to both rear tires.

I have the problem on two different types of DE tires, one is HB Silver (super soft) and the other is DE Sprinter (regular D40 soft--not HB ).So I'm gonna try super gluing the insert to the wheel and then will finish gluing the tire to the rim & see what happens. Can't get more tires=--they are on B.O.o
So gotta do something drastic.

Another trick is to put 2 rounds of duck tape to the inside of the tire. Make the tape narrow enough to go down the center of the tire. This will keep tire from ballooning. Worked for me. -)

Are these tires that you mounted, or bought already assembled? ...
