Tire for SUPER-tight rim
I have a set of neuvation R-28sl5 Wheels, which I'm putting on my (nearly) complete CX Build. And I spent 30 minutes yesterday WRESTLING to get the bead on. It simply wouldn't go. For the record, I'm a pretty experienced mechanic and tried everything but the tire and rim just won't love eachother.
I'm looking for any recomendations on a 30-32 tire that might fit. I've heard Maxxis tires are a little easier to mount but was hoping for some first-hand info. I'll be using this for training and racing in Colorado. Thanks.
The offending tire was a Kenda Kwick 30c.
