make sure there are no extra washers on the outside, a cm too wide isnt that much. Sometimes two people can put one on easy but I have to spread my frame apart to fit my back rim by myself.

[edit] get the rim almost in place, sit behind the rim and pull apart the back end while pushing in with your chest.
