I was having multiple punctures when I switched to these. I have now gone over 4000 mile with out a puncture. I'm sold. I have not had trouble mounting these on my rims.

The Steel bead is impossible to get over the wheel. I've burnt (punctured) two tubes trying to pry the steel bead over the edge of the rim.

Continental Gatorskin Tire (Black) (700c) (25mm)
25mm tire arrived at 24mm width -- but expanded to 24.6 after some use. Bit of a size disappointment, so minus one star. But, these are the most reliable
tires - both in performance and puncture resistance!

Continental Gatorskin Tire (Black) (700c) (32mm)
I am returning these two tires I just bought. I cannot get them mounted on my 700C rims. I tried every trick I know (50 + years of bike maintenance) plus I took them to the local bike shop and they could not get this tire mounted. It looks like a great tire, but if you cannot get it on your bike its worthless.
