leave the valve insert out,

Just a small add on.

When you first inflate the tyre, leave the valve insert out. It restricts the air flow into the tyre. Inflate the tyre to around 50-60 psi, and then let it go completely flat again. Then re inflate it with the valve insert in place to the correct pressure.

This helps to get the tyres bead nice and even on the rim.
