Re-Seat Tire on the Rim
Tire To Rim
Re-seat tire bead into the rim being careful not to pinch the tube with the tire levers if you need to use them.

Depending on the tire/rim combination you will be able to get most of the tire seated with your hands but the last little bit may be difficult and require tire levers.

Make sure the tire is properly seated all of the way around the rim, especially around the valve stem.
