    Hello,

    I just bought the Michelin Axial Performance Tires and when i tried to put them on, I realised that they are a size too small for my wheels.

    I've been looking all over the web for them in size 700x25c but I can't find them. I'm getting very frustrated b/c THEY ARE PERFECT in evey way but that last couple of milimeters that don't fit :(

    PLEASE HELP !!

    you don't need new tyres, Michelins are just hard to get on. You have to really stretch them first or use levers OR very strong thumbs to get them on the rim. 700 x 23 is what I assume you have, that size fits all 700cc rims which are what's on most road bikes these days. The 23 or the 25, 27, 28 etc. just relates to the width of the tyre.

    REALLY ????? OMG! You just made my day!

    I tried realy hard last night to put them on but it looked like iwas going to bend the rim so I stoped.

    how am i supposed to do it without damaginmg the weel? also, the old tube is too long and munches up at the end so should i put in a new and unstretched tube as well?


    THANK YOU SO MUCH! INFORMATION is priceless :)

    :D :D

    Your old tube is too long? That sounds strange if your wheel takes 700c tyres.

    What size markings are there on your old tyre?

    Yes, the old tires were 700x25c and the pressure in them was a max of 120, so when i tried to put the same tubes in the new and never pumped 700x23c, it wa bunching up. But I just put them on with 2 new tubes and all is good now.

    Yeah... I WISH... you are from around here... you see the way the weather has been.... Here in Philly, we ride by the river and with these rains and insane winds, I'll find myself in the river :)

    But I go anyway !!! :D
