I understand how important it is for you to have the proper amount of air in the tire of your snow blower so that you can move around comfortable. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I would suggest you look in your owners manual for all of the useful information about your snow blower. Below is a link in where you can enter your model number and the owners manual will pop up. The second link that I have attached seems to have some great tips about getting your tire re-inflated. I hope my links are useful.

If you're having trouble getting the bead on the tire to seat, you can use a strap (or even a belt) to assist. Take the wheel/tire off the machine (if it isn't already) and wrap the strap around the diameter of the tire. When you pull the strap tight it should cause the side walls to push out and get them to pop onto the rim as you apply air. Once both sides of the tire pop up onto the rim, stop applying air and take the strap off, then finish pressuring the tire.

Some thing to do that will ease this process along:

Wash the rim and wheel in soapy water.

You can use soapy water to act as a lubricant to help get the bead to pop onto the rim.

You can use grease to help get a good seal on the bead (I do this all the time on all tires).

You will almost certainly need pressurized air to get the bead to pop onto the rim. A bike pump usually will not work for this.

If all else fails you can likely get a local independent tire shop to mount the tire for you for less than $10.

Wow. The replay from Wade B is spot on. The miracle of the internet. My tubeless snowblower tire was flat and I couldn't get air in it. After reading this, I put a rachet tie down (the kind you strap things on your car with) around the tire, ratcheted it down. Filled it right up. Took less than 5 minutes. Thanks Wade!

Just want to let Wade know you helped another one. I had he same issue two years ago and had to take the tires in to a local small engine shop to get mounted. This year, I found your suggestion on this forum and tried the rachet tie downs and they worked perfectly. Thank you!!
