Always remove the valve
Wait till the compressor is full
Keep the tyre warm before fitting
Use a bit of watered-down washing up liquid around the bead, never oil
If you still have problems tie an old belt or a piece of rope around the centre of the tyre, keep very tight, this helps push the bead to the seat, again inflate with the valve out & the tyre held vertical.
When removing or fitting tyres it is always best to use some of this washing-up liquid around the bead, makes them very easy to do & reduces damage to the bead.
Cold tyres are very difficult to work with compared to warm ones
