.030 thousands sheet metal rolled the size of the od of the tire or a piece of .125 plastic wraped around the tire then use a rachet strap to pull them together. proboly the safest way without much air.It won't let the tire collapse.

you should never use an oil based lube. it will never go away and can cause the tire to slip on the wheel. Also you may want to look into a tire band from a kart shop.This 5 gallon bucket thing scares the bejesus out of me. I know Rocketboy tires has a new band on the market you may want to check them out.

using it and wraping it around isn't as bad as i have heard of several people who just shove them in a bucket and do that. not thinking about the fact that if the sidewall would blow that sucker would come up out of the bucket like a rocket. i have also seen guy use the thin wratchet straps and seen them snap. I build my own tire bands pretty simple just some 20 gauge sheet steel ,angle iron, all thread and some square tubing

Just throwing this out there but if you want a good lubricant for puttin tires on or getting them on the bead that is not oil based at all and not messy.  Use baby powder just get the cheapest stuff you can find and you don't have to worry about the oil making the tire slip on the wheel.  Works really good!
