take the tire off the car. let it sit on the side and it might go back
to its normal form if not then take a rope and put it around the
circumferance of the tire and use a stick to twist the rope(squeeze the
tire from the cir. and this will get it to fluff out to the rim.. or you
can buy a metal band to do the same thing.. or bring it to a tire shop
to have it fixed correctly.....

Wrap a rope around the circumfrence of the tire and tie both ends to
the center of a piece of pipe. Twist the rope with the pipe like a
tourniqute compressing the tire untill the beads contact the rim.
(spray a little soapy water on the beads for lubrication). Begin
filling the tire with air. After a little pressure builds up, slowly
release the rope. continue to fill the tire untill the beads seat. Be
careful not to exceed the recommended pressure!!
