I have a variety of rims and a variety of tyres. Some of those rims are tight and some of the tyres are tight. There is the option of fitting a loose tyre to a small rim but this will take a bit of trial and error to get the right combination.

Worst combination I have is fitting a Kevlar beaded tyre to a Mavic 217 rim. I can do it but I gave an old tyre to a friend and fitted it on his wheel. Unfortunately-the tyre went down at the friends house before the next ride and he broke his new set of tyre levers in trying to get the tyre off the rim.
