Glad to read you got the two together. I'll keep my secret to myself now

Surprised no one else suggested it though, freeze the rims while the tires boil

Oops secret is out

I know this is an old thread but I just bought these tires today and spent about an hour trying to put them on. I finally figured if I put the tires in the water and put the cup in with the tire in the microwave then and only then it worked. Lol

The above method is good! Also you can just heat up the water by itself and then put the tire in..to avoid potential microwave accidents (..yes...had some personal experience with that one )

I just put a set of T drifts on the HPI work wheels. Although it took some convincing they massaged on pretty well. If you are using a rim other than the HPI that might make it a little harder. They seem to be molded perfectly for each other. I like that fact that it didnt take any glue and man they do look good.
