Be sure tire didn't get damaged at the bead, I had a rather expensive tire that ripped the kevlar bead cord after a blow out and every time I aired it up to around 120, the tire would slip alittle at the bead and it would blow out at the rim..
Anoter trick is to inflate the tube alittle where it stays in tire and then mount one side of the the rim, this prevents the tube from being folded over as the bead is mounted. Try to only use your fingers when you set the bead thats why I use talc it help it slip on easier.,tire tools can cut tubes our pinch them when mounting.
Some people also use a little talc on the tube makes it slippery helps seat the bead., or windex so it will slide around in the tire as it inflates.
I usally only go up to 90 psi let all the air out of the tire completly and check for tube at our near the rim it should not be visable. Always inflate off the bike if you can that way the rim seats evenly. I saw all these idea's on the Bike repair forum by the late Sheldon Brown I try and read every time I can about mechanically problems and quick fixes..
Some of the Vittoria folding tires are rated to 150 PSI perfect for us clydes. They cost more but seem to wear very well, I bought mine on the Bike Island free shippin.
tire I like and I weigh 230 I keep the front at 110 psi the rear at 135 psi they roll very fast seem almost fluid contact with the road.
