Does anyone know of any new tires that for sure will fit good on old rims? By that I mean they are easy to get on and off. I dont know if its just me and have bad luck, but every old rim I have the tires can give you a hernia just trying to get them on, not to mention very hard to prevent puncturing the tube. I remember I got a flat while on a ride once and it took a good 30 minutes just to get the new tire on the rim as I was being so cautious not to wreck my tube. I guess old rims are a mm or two bigger in diameter than new ones, or the rim itself is wider or something, I dont know.
I have a few old michelin tires which go on nicely, but Id rather not use them cause they kinda turned hard with age, so they kinda suck to ride on.
