tire help

i just bought some vittoria action team HSD fold tires and as the name suggests they came folded. i unfolded them and they're really flimsy (what i mean by flimsy is that they don't retain the circular shape that it should normally be in. my question is: can i still use these tires? i guess im currently running non-fold tires. can i still use fold tires? will they fit the same way as non fold tires?

Yes, Put them in the general shape and mount one side like you normaly do. Put the tube in and continue as usual. These are thin good tires.
