- What tyres are easiest to fit to DT Swiss rims?
- Rusty MacSubscriber
Right I have a nice set of Hope Hoops with DT Swiss 5.1 rims, currently these have a pair of Michelin Tires on them which are a complete ball ache to get on and off. Got a snake bite today and snapped a tire lever trying to fix it at the local trails, took the bike to the shop for them to do it and even they struggled.
These are popular wheels so what tire combo works best?
Was thinking along the lines of Maxxis Ardent’s or Continental Rubber Queens.Posted 7 years agoMunqe-chickMember

Are you a full on shiny arse trouser office boy?
Wired or kevlar/folding never had a problem fitting & I don't mean with levers hand only. Schwalbe/Conti/Maxxis/Intense/Bonty/Panracer or WTB tyres from 2-2.5" on DT 5.1 rims?
Only tyre/rim combo I can remember being a struggle were Panracer Category Pro tyres & Campagnolo Moscow rims (bleeding thumbs & split fingers)Posted 7 years ago
