    Tools & equipment that are fantastic.

    Foam filled tire turns inside rim

    I would jack the rear or front up, put one of the ratcheted tie down straps around the tire and reflate the tire. I don't think sheet metal screws would with stand the force generated by the spinning rims inside the tire.

    What you are trying to do is not a one person job with the only tools being a electric screw driver and drill job. My suggestion is to rent one of the devices drywall installers use to install drywall on ceilings. Find a couple of old bumper jacks, (Junk Yard) and fabricate two tools you can...
