I have a "method" for mounting big donuts, but it's not what I'd call a "tool"...

The JK tool is fantastic, but not designed for drag size wheels as the largest cone is about .607" OD.

The OP is looking for a specific tool. I don't know if one exists, or not.

Which is why I didn't respond. He didn't ask for a method - he asked for a tool.

If one exists, I'd buy one.

 

Steering him towards a tool that won't work for him isn't the way to go. Unless he's using 13/16" or less OD drag wheels.

Which I highly doubt.

A simple tapered dowel is all I used when I mounted my own tires.  Made it with a drill press.

A few months ago there was a guy in one of the Facebook drag groups offering one. It was aluminum and well thought out. It was like $75, but again it was top notch. Unfortunately I did not save the post and I cannot remember who made them.

 

I made one out of a tapered rubber stopper found at ACE or Home Depot before. They are in the specialty hardware section in those sweet drawers with all the obscure trinkets. I simply drilled a 3/32" hole through it.

 

Basically take a piece of wood and mount an axle in it. Slide your hub on the axle and then your tire horn and hou are ready to mount.

Lookup Skinner Racing Products on Facebook. They make the nice aluminum one referenced above.
