Any tips getting a tire on an aluminum rim at home

I'm frustrated. All the local shops won't mount a 35" tire. I can mount and balance it myself if I could just get the damn tire on the rim! Anyone??

Maryland sux!!! I grew up there and i hate the way people act about crap like that. Its money lost for them. They should at least do it but not put the rim on the vehicle. Keep looking, there has to be a shop around that will let you carry it out mounted.
