Fyxation Session 28s on B43s

So I have Fyxation Sessions (700 x 28) and I'm trying to mount them on my B43s. I'm using Kenda 700x28/32C tubes with a 60mm valve stem. Here's my problem: both beads of the tire will not fit in the rim because the valve stem seems to be taking up too much space. It seems like the valve stem is jutting too far into where the tube and beads of the tire are supposed to be. This results in not being able to get both beads of the tire to clinch. I dunno if it's a problem with the tube, but I know people have definitely successfully mounted these tires to these wheels. What is wrong? plz help

Put a couple of lbs. of air in the tube before you mount the tire. Mount 1 side of the tire first then the tube, then the other side of the tire. Then when you mount the tire into the rim, just before you pump it up shove the valve stem into the center of the tire, you will probably feel the flange of the stems bace and tube pop into place, or into the tires center. Then air tire up. Good luck
