Pump the tyre up to 8-10bar with it off the rim and leave it for an hour or so to stretch. then to fit pump it to 2 bar and start at the valve and pull the tyre away from the valve stretching it as you go round the rim, its easier if you put the rim on the floor and pull the tyre down.

you can also stretch them onto the rim without glue, pump them to 10bar and let them sit for a couple of hours. Then take them off, glue and pop 'em back on.
