Default Foam Tire Mounting Tool?

Does anyone make a tool for mounting foam tires on rims? I though I saw one once but can't remember who made it.

Lino! you gluing donuts! Dude you don't need a tool or anything, just make sure the contact cement is a little goopy and they slide on easy. What I like to do is glue both the donut and rim, let the rim dry and dunk it in acetone quickly and slide it in while the solvent has the glue nice and slippery. It also makes for better coverage imo.

Actually... You married guys with kids should agree... You know that pelvis exam tool (the one they use on her) the thing that makes little round openings bigger... I bet it'd work perfectly...

the tool used for "her" is a speckulum i believe. i glue foam donuts the same as my golf grips, let the glue get tacky to dry on the rim, glue the donut dip the rim in mineral spirits to re activate the glue on the rim and slide the donut over. let stand for a while and viola, new bologna's.

Kimbrough makes or made a tire horn. It is kind of a flat top cone. Put glue on the rim and donut and let set up. Dip rim, donut and horn in solvent. Place horn on rim and slide donut on. The cone shape expands the donut to slide smoothly on the rim.
