Title updated accordingly!
although i have some Tioga Physco wirebeads that i tried to get on some mavic rims - they almost suffered the same fate.
however, i have some Specialised Z1 rims - i had to cut the wirebead from the conti tyres on there to get them off.
subsequently slipped on some specialized Team master/Comp tyres with no need for levers at all.
are wire beads more reliable? as in, once on they never ever come off?
i find them a bitch to mount, a bitch to post and whenever i remove a set from a wheel, i almost always find rust has penetrated through the rubber...???!!
