Heat... I did mine in winter I had a propane heater in my shop I put the rubber next to that let it warm up it slid on like a glove
Thanks for the timely response. I'll have to figure out a heat source; I knew there was something missing from your instructions, but I do appreciate your help.
At least I now think I'm on the right track. Every story I found was about changing the wheel; yours was the only one I found about just the tire.
