I love these tires, but I'm concerned because they fit very loose on my rims (Shimano Ultegra tubeless). I can take them off the rims using just my hands with very little effort. Conti 4000S tires are hard to mount and dismount in comparison, on my wheels.

I'm worried about these tires blowing off or coming off the rim if the tire goes flat. Are all Vittoria tires like this? Should I be concerned?

I have been using them for years and have had no such issues (coming off the rim when flatting). That being said, I use Bontrager wheels and not Ultegra, so my experience may not match yours.

Your tire will blow up at speed, just like a carbon frame bike in direct sunlight. :aureola: If you want snug, get some Michelin tires.
