i'm not sure i understand your question, but i think you have tire mounted on the rim and now you are trying to put the wheel back on the bike, but can't get the disc to slide between the brake pads?

if so, you just need to put a big flathead screwdriver (or something similar) between the brake pads and pry them apart a bit. that will press the piston back into the caliper and create enough room to fit the disc between them. the pad will tend to flop around, though, so you sometimes have to hold them apart with one hand while you get the disc started into them.

once the wheel is back on, pump the brake lever a few times to push the piston back out of the caliper and seat the pads against the rotor.
