Hate to say it, but are you sure you weren't doing something wrong? Like making sure the tyre slips into the centre of the rim on the opposite side to where you're levering?

The last three of four times I fitted an E0-7 (slightly different tyre of course) it was a piece of cake, even when I was doing it in a ditch with just a couple of short levers and no lubrication of any kind (the only hard part was pumping the blooding thing up again with a tiny hand pump).

Every time I've ever had difficulty fitting tyre, I realised eventually that my technique was wrong.
