Bought this yellow wheel from hell for my trainer, I can't get this damn thing installed on my rim, any suggestions?
Remember to fap daily so that you have enough wrist strength for this stuff, anon
First, you need these tools, opé.
Second, you need something that you can tie up. A plastic bag from supermarket will do it. A shoe cord it's fine too, better.
Third, you need to tie the cord in the place number "one" from image. Make it strong and hard.
Fourth, you need to use the tools i told you to force the tire to enter into the rim, leveraging it with caution, trying to not puncture the tube.
Finally, mount the fucking shit inside rim, cm to cm.
Not always is possible to do that. it depends on tire and rim quality, if metallic wire is in the side of tire, or keblar one, etc etc etc. And you need strong arms of course.
But if the fag is asking for help, just help him or be quiet.
help = using hands
Its simple as that, and i've installed alot of shit tryres on shit rims where it took me hours of frustration and aggression, in the end, its honestly just a matter of your fucking handstrength
I've heard and seen (online) that a number of people have problems mounting these trainer-specific tires.
It may be easier to just go get some cheapo regular tires and burn them up. There is Cheng Shins and Kendas on Amazon for $15; most trainer tires I'm seeing are at least 2-3X as much...
Here are two videos for you, OP. Courtesy of Schwalbe Marathon being a bitch to install.
Using belts to tie up the tire:
..no, you don't need ANY of that to install a tire onto a rim, and in fact doing all that may damage the tire and/or tube, or maybe even the wheel itself if you screw up bad enough.
OP, is it a folding-bead tire or is it a wire-bead (non-folding) tire? I'm thinking it's probably a wire-bead which is a bit more difficult to install, especially if you're inexperienced (which you are, considering you're calling a tire a 'wheel').
Modern rims are what are called 'hook-bead rims'. If you look at the rim, you'll notice that it's not smooth on the inside, there's a little ridge right at the edge. That's there for the bead of the tire to catch onto, so it stays on the rim all the way around when it's inflated. This is getting in your way.
How you deal with this: You've already got the tire 90% of the way installed, but now friction is causing you problems. What you do is you need to push the sidewall of the tire inwards, which allows the bead of the tire to drop down towards the center of the rim, where the spoke nipples are. That will allow you to work the rest of the bead up and over the edge of the rim. Use the thumbs on both hands to work it in a little at a time until it pops on. Don't use ANY tools when you do this (it's not necessary if you use proper technique), not even plastic tire levers, if you do you risk damaging the bead of the tire or puncturing the tube. It's a little more difficult if it's a wire-bead tire but believe me it's supposed to be done with just your hands.

Was looking around on Amazon and ended up seeing some of these trainer tires; it seems that a lot of them are kevlar-bead...?
(for what purpose?)
Kevlar is usually harder to get off and on than steel, and it's not like you're going to pack one in your jersey in case you find a trainer while you're out riding and decide to stationary-ride for a while.
How about you go search youtunbe,googelsbing,startpage,cuckcuckGo,yahho first you dumb bucking shithead?
protip:Ive mounted over 2500 TYRES(FUCK U USA CUNT)And never had a prov
Every Brand rim+TYRE combi
YOURE A FUCKING MESS GO KILL YOURSELF WEABOO FAGGOT
Have you ever actually damaged a tire/tube/wheel with tire levers?
I've literally never had a problem.
