A pet peeve of mine has become mounting modern tires. I've been spooning on my own tires for a loooong time. I remember pretty much getting them on most of the way by hand. Any more they seem to get 3/4 of the way on and the bead is straight across the upper three quarter part of the rim. And solid. Is it just me or have others noticed this? Any way, I don't care what tire is the greatest flavor of the day, I just want one I can fix by the side of the road with out drama. So I ask you, people of the airheads, what you got?
