Pressing the rear of the tire onto the shoulder – Place the tire and rim face up on top of a five gallon bucket.
Push down on the tire using your hands and a knee. Work your way all the way around the tire until the edge of the tire is sitting on the shoulder.
NOTE: The tire does not have to be flush with the lip of the rim. It just has to be in contact with the rim.
Attach the air hose, put the tire back on the bucket, face down, and re-seat the bead as we did in the valve stem replacement clinic.
