    Trail Pimp fits loose in my tires?????

    I just got a trailpimp rear wheel and the tire that fitted fine on my rhyno lite is now loose on my trailpimp. When i inflate the tire, there is always a bump in the tire. I tried using soap and water but the tire is just too loose to be in a perfect shape. Is my rim normal???? If it is, is there any brands of tire that are usually tighter to install???
    Thx

    air pressure is your friend

    sometimes you have to pump up the tire to 60+ psi to get the beads to seat properly in the rim. try that and see if it pops into place, then deflate to normal riding pressure.

    The tire is like really loose. I don't need any tire levers to put them on or off and its really hard to keep the tire all the way around the rim. It's a really cheap tire but i needed my levers to get them off my rhyno lites. It looks like my trail pimp as a smaller diameter. Do you know of any brands of tire that are usualy hard to install. I was thinking about michelins.
