Tricks for installing big tires on beadlocks

Hey guys,

I'm in the middle of installing a set of 45x14.50-17 SXII's on Trailready beadlocks. Using the highlift jack off the bumper as a press.

Due to the amount of sidewall these things have, the top sidewall just walks around as I try to get the bottom over the rim. It frustrating to say the least.

Thought someone might have some tricks to share.

On tire #3 right now so they're going on. Have 2 more to go. I'd just like to finish with less cussing and tools flying around the shop.
