    Yes... do you have access to a good strong/fast air line?

    If so then take the center of the valve stem out and recruit some extra hands to try to hold the tire down around the tread. I've also squeezed it with a rope or strap.

    However, if you do not have access to the air source, it's a lot more painless to pay a few bucks to let the tire store do it for you. That's what I do anyway.
