I have a pair of these in the clinchers and the tires are a pain in the butt to get on and off. Is there any tricks? I heard some one said the reason is because the whells is slightly bigger than usual?

Hey. I have a HED Jet Deep rear and a J2 front. The wheel is a little bigger but i think that is due to the fact that the rim is supposed to come a little higher on th tire because they are race wheels or Steve HED doesn't know how to measure. i've broken 6 tire levers on mine but i've found the best way is to delfate them and not use tire levers to take the tire off.

I've got the same setup (650c wheels).
I've tried putting on Conti. Superslicks, but without success (just pinched the tube). Could you explain in detail how do you put on the tires? what brand do you use?
