Blown inners

Hi all,
I've just got some Campag Vento Reactin wheels for the winter bike that I'm doing up, but each time I stick an inner in, when i get it up to about 80psi, it blows.

The tyres are Conti 4 seasons, are also reasonably new and don't have any thorns in.

I've blown 4 inners now, two of which were brand new.

Any tips or recommendations about types of inner tube to buy?

Thanks for any help you can give.

    Are the wheels new?
    What condition is the rim tape?
    Are there any raised spokes?
    I had a brief encounter with this. In my case, the rim tape was cheap and deformed with the pumoping pressure, so the tube went into the spoke holes..... BANG :shock:

    Get Velox rim tape, most of the others are too flexible
  • Campag Rim tape is far from Flexible, it's thick plastic stuff, and shouldn't be deforming all that much.
