I like using starter fluid.. and take the valve stem core out. If you don't the tire will collapse on itself if you don't get air into it fast enough.

course, with a powertank, you may not need this method.

It doesn't fill the tire, it just reseats the bead. You still need to put air in it.. and if you dont' do it fast enough with the valve core in it will pop the bead again as it collapses on itself.

ah, okay that's what i was thinking. I couldnt see a way that it would filled up, but still a great idea i guess if you had to resort to that!
