Yeah, BOBcat385b sounds weird
A cat without a tail trying to mount tires
Might be like a squirrel playing on hydro wires
Things may be great as long as attention is paid
And the squirrel carries on with the plans that he's made
But touch something wrong or step in the wrong spot
And the dance that will follow could be hot, hot, hot !

I held my comments on this as I have been down this road often. I learned the hard way, as I hope you have, that there is a certain way the tire has to be put on the rim. Windex is a great helper. I place mine on the floor and use a knee to press one side down while prying the tire over the rim. Now is the time to check if the tread pattern is correct. Like mentioned before, I had to switch one of my AGS around. I liken mounting tires to wrestling alligators!
Breaking the bead, fixed I have a bead breaker now
Removing the tire from rim, Worst case use a sawsall.
Mounting the tire, discussed above
Inflation, Can be a bear, Straps, more straps, and globs of grease.
