Folding up tires

Anyone know how to fold up tires for shipping? I got them from the store folded up, but can't figure out how to put the genie back in the bottle.

One retains it's circular shape. While the other can be folded every which way.

I was able to fold them, so does that mean wire?

It's not about the folding, throw it on the ground. Kevlar tires will not retain a circular shape. Wire beads will, unless they were folded like crazy.
