Put a monkey wrench handle inbetween your tire and rear triangle, like if your bike is upside down. and use it as a lever to push your wheel back while you tighten your wheel. I made a diagram.

the red thing is the wrench and the blue arrow is the way you pull it, see how it makes your wheel go back. Physical science; is there anything better?
