Thanks guys. The reference line is equal all the way around the tire, and equal all the way around on the non effected side. It is only pulled away ( lack of a better term) in the one area that is shown. Since it's the 4th and there are NO bike stores open, I took the wheel up to Pep Boys got some nice kids to help me out, we deflated the tire and used the tire machine to break the bead, then re inflated it, stayed the same.. They thought it might just be a bad tire, For numerous reasons, I really, really, really don't want it to be a damaged tire, since the person who installed it's ego would never allow him to accept that he f'ed it up... I'm going to have to wait until Monday now and take it to another shop to have them look at it. And I'll just have to stay off the bike until then, it might be fine (I rode it 30 miles home) but it's just not worth the risk of having it fail.. I am just so pissed off I'm going to lose today and tomorrow's riding..
