Just mounted a new set of PP tg's last week. I usually spray some windex on the tire to give it a bit of lubrication and they normally go on no problem. I used to work in a gas station and we used a bit of soapy water on the bead to do the same thing. It can make your hands a bit slippery to but keep a box of latex gloves around to give you some grip and keep your hands clean.
