Might take a little extra elbow grease, but here's a few pro tips...
1. Get the bead down into the recess of the wheel. It's designed to make it easier.
2. Lube. Use it.
3. Leverage is your friend.
4. If it's feeling like it would be easier to lift the bike than put the tire on the wheel, something is wrong. Don't be afraid to re-try it.
5. Heat up the tire if at all possible. We've always left the tire in the sun for a half hour or so, or put it next to the heater for the same amount of time. If you can barely touch the tire, it's just about right.
Definitely possible, use those tips and it'll go on a lot easier.
