I built up a new frame a few weeks ago and asked the shop to mount some new tires on wheels I used on a previous bike. While changing a flat yesterday, I found the tire (vittoria zaffiro) to be an awfully tight fit. It was hard to get off the rim (MA3), and I couldn't remount it. I'm used to remounting tires by hand, but this tire I couldn't get reseated even using tire levers, which I hate having to use.

I've probably changed only changed a dozen or so different tire/rim combinations, with some easy and others harder, but never had this problem. Any advice?

Go to the wheel & tire forum. There's a large thread on mounting tight tires there.
