Tire won't go on rim
Hi everyone, I have a set of Shimano Deore LX rims from 1994, and I'm trying to put Nimbus EX (26 x 1.50) tires on them. I got the rear tire on ok, but the front one is giving me a lot of trouble.
One side of the bead goes on fine, but I can't get the bead on the other half seated. I snapped a tire lever trying to pull the bead onto the rim. Does anyone have some ideas? Thanks.
