I have a set of used Open Pros with Michelin yellow rim strips. Just got them back from truing and I was hoping to ride them tonight. But it was not meant to be.
The strips seem to be in good condition, but they are not snug against the inside of the rim. As I mount the tires on them I notice that the rim strip bunches up in one place. I've tried a couple of times but each time I go to seat the 2nd bead I can see it bunching somewhere. I could not find these strips on the Michelin website so no indication of the correct use of these.
Is this normal? Would gentle coaxing with a hot air gun shrink it to fit better? The wheel is 700x23 and the rim strip is marked Michelin 18_622.
Thanks in advance.
