Panaracer GravelKing Tires

To install is not very difficult, I would say Medium level. Some tires go on buttery smooth, some are a 12 round fight to get on, these are somewhere in the middle. I did not levers to get on or off.
I rode these tires for a total of 30 miles that included 2 front flats and zero rear flats. Searched high and low for a source of the flats and could not find one on the rim, or inside the tire. After much debate it was determined that the tire has some bumps near the bead that mates the rim to the frame, the bumps could have prevented the tire from properly seating to the frame and caused the tire to come loose from the rim and blammo, flat. Never had that problem before. Maybe I got a lemon tire, maybe not, I cannot trust them anymore. Like I said for the right person, I'm sure they are great, I'm just not that person.
