Tire mounting tips

Is that a firecracker he threw in there?  I don't normally carry those but maybe throw some in the tool box.  Seriously though if this happens to you, take a ratchet strap around the circumference of the tire and suck it down.  It will flare the part of the tire that seats on the beads enough that you can then air it up.

I totally agree with Mark. Strap that tire down with a ratchet strap. The best way to seat a beadlock rim. Been there... done that... it works!

I know everyone don’t have a air blaster but under due care and caution !! Starter fluid works great but just a small amount. 😜

TB

The good “old” starter fluid 👍🏻 This new stuff isn’t flammable enough

I use two straps seems to work a little better for me. But the rachet strap method works perfectly *update* so you know... I actually got these delivered to the local motel/rv park and did 5 of them from the gate. Installed valve stem and all.... A little soapy water, a 12v pump, and two rachet straps.. A little wiggle/jiggle and they were holding air.... took off straps and let them go..... pop.... not POP!!!! Like a tire shop... so I ran them at 35 for a day to set the bead nicely.... then down to 12/15. They are DOT tires and it's only muddy here now....
