the method i've always used when the shop is cool is to put them on the front seat of the pickup, turn the heat up to fry your butt, fan to helo high speed, walk away and do something else for awhile. the rear tire needs to be darn warm to the touch, if not hot. that and plenty of lube, and it mounts right up.
the fronts aren't anywhere near as stiff, but it still helps to warm them too.
even in summer temps, i'll let the BBs sit in the sun before mounting.
once you mount them all heated up, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.
