i got one to fit.
they stretch fine, its just when they come from tirerack, they're \ / way too much to get a seal. not to mention im just storing them in my garage, which doesn't help expand the sidewalls. I hope me mashing on one of the tires wont cause tire failure down the line, ill probably use that one as a spare.
i got one tire on and had to call it quits because i cant get it all done in time where i wont be disturbing the neighbors.

what i did was went out and got 2 12.5inch bike inner tubes and did it that way. i just hope these inner tubes don't pop when my face is a few inches away.

edit: oh yea, heres an example of how bald my tires are haha :-X
the 5th rim i got mounted with the 215s. i rolled it next to my wheels and its the exact same size, height wise.
