Default Mounting Tire

Not exactly about car, but I got a flat tire on my tractor and the tire came
off the rim. The tire is still inside the rim, just not sealed onto the
edge. I tried to put it back on by inflating it with the shut-off valve of
the stem valve removed. But it's obviously leaking faster than the air can
get in and the tire wouldn't seal the rim edge. Any tips how I can get the
tire on?

Thanks for any help!

====================
Fix the flat first.
I've seen this done with a belt or rope around the center of the tread
pulled tight to push the sidewalls out.
