Seat a Tubeless Tire on a Dolley or lawnmower, ect...

New Dolley's ect are tubeless. Getting the tires to set on the rim is a pain. Not any more. This is so simple. Just take a strap or piece of cord, doesn't matter. Put it around the center and tighten. The bead will push out and then you can fill with air. So simple. I hope this helps you. dorf dude...

I use a small ratchet strap so I can work with one hand.
In a jam I've even used my belt for small tires.
Still not seating, pick it up and bounce the tread part on the ground a few times.

Don't forget a match and some ether:furious:

Sometimes when I worked at the tire shop, even that stuff wouldn't work. I'd just get pissed and throw a tube in there.

Yeah, that sometimes works. But if not at least there's the thrill of the WHOOMP! sound it makes, and the smell of your burnt off eyebrows or arm hair.

Me, I've just used my belt most of the time. But the strap with a lug wrench handle to twist it is a better idea, thanks for posting the picture.
