    Try putting the partially inflated tube in the tire before mounting it. This should help hold the tire in shape while you work.

    It's a bit of a game to be honest, lol. Pretty much what I do is place the bead under where the inflation valve sits and then just snug the valve down to the rim a tad to hold the bead in place...this is normally enough to then push the rest of the bead into place on the rim with your fingers.
    You can also try holding the bead into place in one spot on the rim and then using your other hand to work the tire into place around the rim.
