I recently fitted tyres to a box trailer. I had trouble getting the tyre to seal against the wheel. I found a solution using ratchet tie-down straps. I put them around the tread and cinched them up tight.

Taking the valve cores out allows a better rush of air. Obviously, put them back in once the beads are in place.

Just to polish this one off, the new technic worked on all the bikes (except the triumph which has so many issue I dont count it). I gave up the trial with the A7 as now I know how to start it after a layup it did not seam worth while. It will soon be warmer and the 3 reliable bikes will all start being used regularly and will not require the extended procedure  *smile*
