Tire change

Put new tires on my Rebel today. IRC tire went on the front easily and needed no balancing.
Dunlap 404 went on the rear. What a pain in the backside. Definitely the most difficult tire I have ever mounted. But it is the first time mounting a rear on the Rebel, so maybe it's just the tire size. It needed a small amount of balance weight. Next time I will definitely try another brand. Has anyone had the same experience?.

I was thinking Kenda or Shinko next time.
I wonder if the Dunlap 404 being a "tubless" tire makes it more difficult on the rear rim. The IRC I used on the front is a "tube" tire and went on easily. I looked but could not find a "tube" tire for the rear.
