not at all, it was actually surprisingly difficult to pry it off deflated, let alone having it fully unseat (unless damaged). I've read of many people going from getting a pinch flat every 4-6 rides to going 4-5 years without a flat.

only time will tell. Oddly the wheel feels like it is forming to the ground better during my test ride, but I don't know if thats fact or perception. also time will tell on my next full ride.
