A reply from Wheeler Dealer:
"Inflate the tube just so it barely gets round, use talcum powder on it and put it into the tire.
Then, start by inserting the valve in the rim hole and secure it with the valve nut, but no more than that the nut is just flush with the top of the valve, lubricate the tire's lower face and pull it on it with tire irons, repeat for the upper hand. "



Good Luck !

Good and thorough job except.....when I put on a new $200 dollar tire it also gets a new tube and rim tape. Just my 2 cents worth...Dave
