Can't get tire on rim

Post by maximus » Wed May 24, 2017 7:59 pm

Something must be off here... I've been trying to get this tire on my rim for 2 hours. You can see how far I was able to get in the picture. The other side of the tire is on.

When I get it to this point, it's super tight, and when I leverage one side the other side comes out.
The tire is a diablo Rosso 3 150/60zr17 and the rim is a 17" warp 9 supermoto rim.

I've already put about 4 dings/scratches in my brand new rims. And I'm getting pretty fed up.

I spent $100 on tools so I would be able to learn how to do this myself but now it seems the only way is to bring it in to a shop. Although I really don't want to do that because I'm trying to learn how to do this on my own if I ever need to do it again.
