Helping a mate. Having real trouble getting tyres on and off HED rims. Tried a well worn Prorace 3 and it will need 2 levers to go over the 1st rim edge! Tried every trick in the book. Any ideas? Also....which top end tyre is a "slack" fit?

    Which tricks did you try? I was then going to suggest PR3s as the slacker of the bunch of high-end tyres I've tried! Have you considered changing the rim tape?
