I did do a search on this. I found that some guys use a ratcheting tie down strap around the tire to spread the tire and start putting air in. Then loosen strap as air goes in until it's full. Will this work with a 12v mini air compressor?. I think the one I was considering was called a Truckmate (?). It's has a higher psi then a Carmate. One thread I saw mentioned that these small cigarette lighter inflators aren't powerful enough to seat the tire on the rim. Can someone confirm this? Even if the strap is used? What other ways are there to seat the tire on the rim? I've read about the gas and a match method to sorta 'explode' the tire onto the rim. But I'm a bit skeptical about trying that one. Any others? Thanks.
