Panaracer Fire FR 2.4

Hey Guys,
OK so i bought these tires and a new wheelset (Sun Rhyno Lite Rims with XT hubs) and i work at a bikeshop and i have never seen a set of tires go onto a rim so stubbornly. Anyone experienced this with these tires? But with that being said, these are hands down one of the best if not the best tires i have ever ridden. So grippy and so good for climbing. I would also like to add that these tires are not 2.4 inches wide, they are definitely wider.
Peace Out

yep, those tires kick @ss, front and rear.

don't worry about them being hard to get on the rim. just means you have less chance of rolling them at low pressure.......

i've rune mine into the low 20psi range with no problems.

pffft, and don't worry about them on those rims. perfect rims for them. i'm using mine on some mavic rims with a width of about 28mm, and have yet to have any problems. been using them since they first were available.
