Helps if you “fold” the tire into an oval and slide the rim into the wide part.  Also, some rims have a taller inside than outside (or maybe it’s the other way around…)  so install with the smaller diameter, but making sure you’re orienting the tire correctly.  5″ tires can be done by hand.  6″ tires, not so much.
