I have to second (or third, can't remember) the mention that Vittorias are THE most difficult tires to mount/dismount. I don't buy them at all (even though I like the ride of them) because of this major hassle...
I never had much of a problem with Vittoria Zaffiros on my old Alex rims or Vittoria Open Corsa Evo Cx tires on 1980's vintage Mavics, but I had a major hassle putting a new Bonty Race Lite on a Bonty wheel. Two days, lots of soap, water, and cursing....and two tubes. You would think that it would have been easier considering that they are supposedly made for each other.
