hi all, this may have come up before but i need clarification if anyone can help. i have dt swiss rr 1.1 rims and my conti gp4000 tires are extremly very hard to put on. can anyone suggest tires that are easier to install on these rims please? i think schwalbe stelvio may be good. any help would be excellent.

I've got a set of dt swiss 1450's and had the same problem with my conti's. When I replaced tires I put a set of pro 3's michelins and they went on a lot easier. Love the tires to boot.
thanx greg44. i really like the ride of my conti's but i am not looking forward to a flat on the road with these tires and rim combo. it was nearly impossible to get em on at home. thanx again:thumbsup:

I pinch flatted two tubes trying to install gp4000's on some OP's.
Pissed me off. Sold them and bought some Mich Carbons.
I can remove and install these with no irons.
I wanted to try the gp's but not worth the hassel to me.
