I just used a couple of large flat screwdrivers, they go on and off really easy. It's like kids toys compared to a car toy. Give it a try

easiest way is to use a jack all with the base right on the edge of the bead and then put the jackall under something heavy such as a truck bumper and jack.. this pops the bead.. you can also do it with a 2x4 and hammer... then use two screw drivers to get the lip over the rim... simple as that

Depending on the tire/rim combo you may need lotsa non-petroleum grease to get the beads to seat. Mounted a set of Executioners on my Kodiak years ago and they were a pain in the ass. Just put Swamplites on my Grizz and no probs seating them but the Mudlite XTR's I put on the wifes Polaris took a bit of grease and about 30psi to seat 'em.

dish soap works good and your tires get washed at the same time:D
dont like the idea of any type of lube that stays greasy on tire beads
i have a hard enough time keeping tires beaded

give it a shot without first but sometimes you have no choice. A silicon based lube works and doesn't affect the rubber compound of the tire. 20 years pulling wrenches and I never saw a single problem with slippage/bead loss from using lube. Lack of tire pressure will do it every time though! :D
