The tire has beaten me

I tried to replace the punctured hand-truck tire with a new one. I succeeded in getting the bad tire off the hard plastic rim. I utterly failed to get the new tire onto the rim. I thought it'd be rather like replacing a motorcycle tire, based on the Youtube videos I found. It's not. Really. it's not. Motorcycle tires are a lot larger, and somewhat more flexible. This tiny damn thing WILL NOT pop onto that goddam rim.

I tried 2 tire places and a motorcycle place. none of them could help me. I think my last hope is a shop that services lawn-mowers. if they fail me, I'll probably try to stab something.

I *really* don't want to have to pay express shipping for a new tire to get it to me by Friday.

I have a big sturdy hand truck that you could borrow that I could bring to you on Friday. Would that work?

Fortunately, I managed to find a mower repair shop who dropped it down an elevator shaftput it back on the rim for cheap. Thanks, tho!
