tire stretch installation?

Im building a honda ruckus for someone I know and one of the many mods done to it is a 9" wide rear wheel. the tire to be put on is a 140 in width. Its been done before, but can't find anyone in houston who would be able to do this or has experience with it. any of y'all know?

I'm thinking of taking the tire off and inflating a tube inside of it, hoping it'll stretch out the sidewalls and ease installation a lil

from what I've heard you need to find a shop with an air blaster made for big rig tire installations. Like this

I took the wheel and tire to Rollo's Solutions and they had two of those, one was a cheetah. I think they could've gone about different ways of blasting the tire, but they weren't able to get it on using both of them. that and the manager there was starting to grow impatient after about 5 minutes and said it couldn't be done before even attempting. I think it very well could have been done
