I got myself some new Michelin Pro Race 3 tyres and found them very hard to get on the rim anyone else experience this.

I've never experienced this from any tyres before, I hope they are fast and solid to be worth the 2 inner tubes I burst trying to get them on!

    Might buy some this week, what were you riding before?
    Any info of value, particularly cut resistance.

    I have a small cut on the rear but nothing major, the tyre's are still good after 200 miles tho.
