I replaced my Deathwings with kenda 270's. I still crash.

Still can't get about a 1/4 of it on the rim. I guess I'll have to take it to the "stealer" tomorrow. I appreciate the response.
That DOT date means it was manufactured in the 25th week of 2012 so they are not very old.

For the difficult and stubborn front tires (19" here) this seems to work, for me that is.

It also takes plenty of lube, couple of minutes of foot stomping and an iron for the last press-on. Oh yes...plenty of lube. More lube.

And no issues with tube getting twisted, pinched, ....
If it can go wrong, it will go wrong!!!

Why so much trouble changing tires? I took off two and put on two in 1 hr, 15 mins including taking them off the bike 2 days ago. This is not rocket science..... Are you taking the tube out after you break both sides and open up 1 side(the disc side)? Do you have 3 GOOD Spoons (MSR, MotionPro)? Do you have access to dishwashing soap?No need to waste 10 zip ties to do this.The only part that might slow you up at all is a rim lock.Also put just a touch of air in the tube so that it kind of takes a shape before you re-insert it back in the carcass. And a good compressor to pull up that bead.
