Anyone else have problems mounting IRC Mythos XC folding to Stans Olympic rims?
I could not even get the tire close to seating. The compressor just blew air right through at the valve area. It looks like the casing is too stiff to mold to the shape of the rim?
THey are on Stans list of recommended tires?

Run with tubes in them for a few weeks. This will shape the tire and bead so that they are easier to mount with Stans. I had a WTB MutanoRaptor 2.4 that I thought would never mount but after running tubes for a while I was able to convert it easily.

Tube it first to seat the beads, then take 1 side off and pull the tube. Now you've only got one side to fight. Usually works with hard to seat tires(like the 2.25 RRalph) especially when not using rimstrips.
