If you take the wheel off the bike, most auto tire shops that do custom and mag wheels, have machines that turn the wheel into a stationary mount/dismount tool, and have soft jaws that work fine for mc wheels. I bought my tire from the local tire shop at a little better price than online, and got free mounting to boot, 2 min. job. He felt like he made out because he didn't have to balance it, and I wanted to try Dyna Beads anyway, which work fine. Good Luck!

Some have had luck getting a car tire shop to mount them. It's another option.
See you out there
