Pull the valve core out, take the air hose with no chuck in it (female end) put it over the valve stem it should push a huge amount of air into the tire also use liquid soap to help seat quicker

push one side on by hand as far as you can than use alot of air and work with the other side. it took me about 15 a tire to do mine because the were shipped really flat like that also. and use ALOT of dish soap

put some dish soap on the bead and then do the starting fuild trick, buck make sure you take the valve stem out or once the falme is over its gonna suck the bead right back off

I tried it with my sand rail when I threw a rear paddle and it didn't work but I think we used/tried WD-40 or something.
I have done it with golf cart tires and we never bothered with the valve stem.......worked fine but I could see how it would happen.
