OK so i bought these tires and a new wheelset (Sun Rhyno Lite Rims with XT hubs) and i work at a bikeshop and i have never seen a set of tires go onto a rim so stubbornly. Anyone experienced this with these tires? But with that being said, these are hands down one of the best if not the best tires i have ever ridden. So grippy and so good for climbing. I would also like to add that these tires are not 2.4 inches wide, they are definitely wider.
