Wash the rim and wheel in soapy water. You can use soapy water to act as a lubricant to help get the bead to pop onto the rim. You can use grease to help get a good seal on the bead (I do this all the time on all tires). You will almost certainly need pressurized air to get the bead to pop onto the rim.

Herein, how do you put air in a snowblower tire?

The tire can easily be inflated by wrapping a ratchet type tie down strap around the circumference of the tire and tightening it until the tire starts to spread and seat on the rim. That is when you can hit it with the air and the tire should seat and inflate normally. Release the tie down strap before fully inflating.

How do you put beads on a tubeless tire?

Install the valve core and secure.

  1. Check that the tire bead is correctly seated. In some cases, the bead will be too low. Deflate the tire, break the bead at the low point, and lubricate with soapy water. Reinflate.
  2. Spin the wheel to move sealant around inside the tire.
