can anybody mount a tire for me today?

i swapped front ends on my tmgp bike yesterday and i want to put my dunlop slick on the new front end...
to took the old bridgestone slick off and got the dunlop half way on and the tube in, but i can not get the tire all the way on...i am doing it old school with screwdrivers for spoons and i am afraid i am going to tear the tire or tube...if you can do it today give me a call on my cell 713 303 7414...i will be doing oil change and putting clips in place of safety wire so i will be outside...
if no one can help i will just take it to patick tomorrow....not an emergency just want to get finished today...i will bring the tire to you if you have the stuff to make it work

So do you just cut the zip ties? Guy should have put a board on the tire and kneeled on it. Interesting none the less.
