I always put the tires on from the front, but when you flip it around and go to put it on make sure you get the bead down into the middle of the rim in the deeper part. Also once you have it on if you have the valve stem core out leave it out, and take the air hose with out the air chuck on it. Just push that onto the valve stem, this will give you a bigger burst of air to help seat the bead, also keep your fingers away from the bead area. If you were closer id come and help ya.
