I made a tool a while back that did just this. It was "U" shaped, with
the width of the U being the distance between 2 bolts. I had the ends
tapered slightly for easy insertion into the lug holes. I put the tool
into two holes in the rim and then into two holes in the rotor. It lifts
the tire into spot and aligns it immediately. Plus you can let go of it
and it will stay there so you can put in the remaining two lugs. Works
like a champ and easy to make.
