Tire experts need advice (bad sale)

Ok i sold a used general uhp tire to a board member. I thought everything was fine until this morning when i got a pm telling me the tire I sold him wouldnt hold air. I was running this tire with no problems until I took it off to sell the rims. The buyer said he stretched the 235-35-19 to fit 19/9.5. Im assuming the his tire place put on the tire, then it deflated. he says they told him there was a "gash on the bead" and that it wouldnt seal right.

Heres my dliemma. I want to do whats right. But I never had a problem with the tire and as far as i know when i sold it , it was in good condition. Im wondering what the tire experts on this board think? the only way the damage could have occured on my end was when the tire was being dismounted. Wouldnt his tire people have seen the damage? Could it have happened when trying to stretch it on the rim? What do you think is the fair thing to do? he said he would send me pics of it. Since it was running fine on my rim, Im leaning to the idea that the stretching onto a rim its doesnt really go on is more of the issue than the tire.

if its being stretched, your 'warranty' ended at that point.

ive stretched 225 on a 19x10 stretching will not tear it. your culprit will most likely be the dismounting or mounting of the tire.

depending on the quality of the tire shop will depend on if they inspect the tire before attempting to mount the tire, since the tire wasnt bought from them there really is no reason for them to look at it thoroughly. best bet would come to a mutual agreement for a partial refund and if you want the tire then have him send it back to you

9.5" is within the recommended rim width range that is given by General Tire itself on this tire in the 235/35R19 size. Assuming it was fine before unless *you* or *your* shop damaged the tire when dismounting it or shipping it, the responsibilty lies with the buyer due to incorrect installation or other error that is not your fault.

did you thoroughly inspect the tire right before shipping?
