Printed it and it's pretty awesome. The clearance from the tires to the wheels is beyond a tight fit. Any tips on how to get the tires on the wheels without damaging either? I've cut into one of the tires trying to lightly tap them together with a hammer.

What hardness of TPE did you use? I have NinjaFlex TPE with a durometer of 85A, it flexes quite a bit. Some things I've done in other past prints with things that don't fit quite right: If it's PLA you can put it in hot water and actually stretch the plastic if it is not too thick. Maybe try that with the tires so that they expand and hopefully can slip them on. Otherwise you might try re-scaling the tires in the x and y axis.
