Default Tire lube

I'm sure there are plenty of opinions on what to use to lube tires when it comes time to mount. Having said that, I tried something different yesterday based on a video from Dirt Bike Channel:
A buddy asked me to mount some tires for him. He runs a Tubliss system so I decided to watch a few videos to make sure no special tools/precautions were necessary. I came across the dirt bike channel video on it and he mentioned he used only armorall as a lubricant. I tried it... and I liked it... Tires went on VERY smoothly.

I just use windex, but I bet armor all would work great.

I usually don't use anything, once in a blue moon I'll use dish soap or baby powder.

It's not necessary to buy commercially manufactured lubricant when a homemade version will work just as well.

Put the tire out in the hot sun for a few hours and then mount using WD40 on the beads.
