Tips for Replacing Snowblower Tires?

Hi All,
I have a Craftsman 2 stage snow blower and after reseating the tire on the rim (tire was flat), I overinflated and yep you guessed it ...blew the tire
I struggled getting the old tire off and ended up cutting it off and am struggling to get new one on, so Please.........

Any tips on getting the new tire on the rim?
Thanks

If you do not have tire tools I strongly suggest you take the wheel and tire to a tire shop.

Yea, I guess you can tell I don't have any tire tools.
I did read on another forum that by soaking the tire in hot water it might make it easier to get on
(don't know).
Won't be able to try until late tonight. Thanks for reply

Just a follow up to this thread. I did soak the tire in hot water and was able to put new tire on wheel. You don't need any special tools to do this, just a couple of flat head screw drivers to pry tire onto wheel (like changing a bicycle tire, only bigger and a little more work)
