Loosely wrap a cord around the center of the tire.  Use a stick or screw driver to twist the cord and girdle the tire.  That should make it spread out and touch the beads.  Loosen the cord before you get too much air in it.

As I recall, garages use a belt wrapped around the center of the tire to compress the center section, thereby pressing the bead into place, followed by applying air pressure, so I think re-design has the right method.

I think there is a classic method involving a small gas explosion - a fraction of a tea spoon of gas, and a lighter. The minor explosion reseats the bead. 

Void where prohibited, your mileage may vary, objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are etc.

I still like the cord an stick method.  Less burned eyebrows.

You could use one of the ratchet load binders if you have one.
