Iíve encountered this with folding tires (Ultra Sport II, for example, but generally all folding tires) that Iíve tried on my Ambrosio extra rims.

I just recently picked up the Kool Stop lever and keep it on the bike. This one looks handy because itís a bit more compact, but they only spec it up to 28s and I run 32s.
