partially inflating the tube can help avoid pinching it during fitting. Also fit the tube, put a bit of air in then let it down and then check the tube isn’t trapped under the tyre bead. Trapping the tube under the bead, if you were puncturing them with the levers then they’d likely not inflate at all.
