So I got a new set of tires for my bike a Trex 7.5x. The old tires where 700x32. I went to a 700x28.
The old tires came off the rims with out a problem. The new skins however, where a bear to get on.
I put one side on, then the tube into the tire. When I went to put the otherside of the tire on, it was a tight fit. I broke two plastic tire levers putting the first tire on, it was that tight. I had to resort to using a screwdriver to pry the tire on. I don't think I have done that since Nixon was president.
Any body have any tips or tricks for putting on very tight tires?
And the worst part is that I have to redo the rear tire, I was stressing over how tight and difficult it would be to pu on, I forgot to line up the valve and label. It doesn't just look right.
