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.

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.

Continental Gatorskin Tire (Black) (700c / 622 ISO) (25mm)
I've been buying Continentals for years, because in my experience, they last longer than any other tire that I've tried; I rarely get flats; they have terrific grip; they last as well as any; and I've never had a tire failure through maybe a hundred of these tires. My frame can only accommodate a 25mm (ACTUAL) tire. THIS PARTICULAR MODEL of Continental is the only one that I can find that measures an ACTUAL 25mm. All the the other so-called 25mm, or 25C Conti tires that I've tried lately measure less than 25mm when measured with calipers. (I'm using the same rim, and tire pressure for comparison.) Tires are a pretty fast wearing item for me, and I cannot afford to give up even a mm. Also, I don't want to be on anything smaller, because I can feel a rougher ride. My wife's bike takes a 28mm, and the calipers show that's spot-on as well. I would suggest, though, that the printed tire information (size, inflation data, etc.) on the sidewall is made easier to read - or maybe, if they have to, put a QR Code on the sidewall for that.
