I'm looking at purchasing the Reserve 52/63 wheelset.
Does anyone here have any experience with them?
I'm specifically looking for answers to the following:
1. Are tires easy to mount?
2. What is your experience with Reserve customer service and their lifetime warranty?

Many thanks.

Reserve 40|44 here, but dimensions are close to 52|63.
Vittorias are pita to mount. Requires trip to LBS with compressor.
GP5000 S TR can be mounted with track pump though.
No experience with warranty, it's been solid wheelset so far.

Reserve 40/44 Easy to mount all tubeless tires I've tried by hand...GP5k S TR, Corsa 25 TLR, Veloflex Evo 28mm
Reserve 34/37 Easy to mount all tubeless and clincher tires I've tried with the exception of the IRC Serrac 30's
Reserve 32/32 Gravel wheels, Had problems with Panaracer SK's Tubeless to get inflated but compressor and valve core removal worked.
Cracked a Reserve 32 rim and got a replacement in 5 days laced with a new hub and sent the damaged wheel back pre-paid

Thanks for the detailed info. It sounds like you've had a pretty good experience with Reserve wheels, Skinnybex.

I've had issues with Panaracer SS getting the bead to seat as well on my gravel bike wheels FWIW, and the valve core removal & fast shot with my bontrager tubeless pump did the trick.
