My suggestion is if you are going to mount these tires, do a dry run with a screw driver first (that is if you don't mind a small ding in your rim possibly) After that, the bead should be stretched enough to then mount with a tube in it.
Once it's on, it's a great tire for the home trainer. I guess it's hard to put on so that it stays on under the stresses of a trainer roller. The compound doesn't heat up at all, and is less noisy then a road tire. The grip is great, no slipping when doing a sprint. I recommend that if you use a trainer (vs rollers), to take the load off the tire in between uses. Otherwise I'm sure you'll get flat spot. And don't be afraid to go to the 120 psi recommended. I took it to 115psi, could have gone to 120.
It seems quieter and smoother on the trainer. So far so good.
Used this tire all last winter. It shows almost no wear. It doesn't slip. It's not supple at all. It's thick. That's one of the reasons it's so hard to mount.
Update, after almost three years, with intensive use on the trainer over the winters where 5 hour rides were common, the tire finally gave up. I was very satisfied with the life I got out of the tire and still recommend it.
