+1. When I learned to deal with bicycle wheels, I had gotten it into me from somewhere that I should always start at the valve and work my way to the other side when remounting tires. But the valve will end up fighting you the whole way.

With tighter-fitting rims, thinner "tubeless" rim tape and finishing AT the valve are pretty much mandatory! @Barchettaman, if you put Velox rim tape on these wheels, I'd try something else.
