I scored a pair of Geax Saguaro TNT tires for an awesome price.
I just tried to install one on a Stan's Arch EX and it ain't happening. Even if I thought I might get it on, I'm not sure I would want it on there' it's so tight.
So, are these not supposed to work on these rims?

Stans rims are not designed for tubeless ready tires, they are designed to convert standard tires to tubeless. They make seating them easier by making the inner diameter a little larger for a tight fit. Standard tires have enough stretch to fit, but some tubeless ready tires such as the TNT and TCS tires have a stronger bead designed to fit UST spec rims and not stretch.
