after 2 hours of sweat bit of blood and nearly tears finally got bead to seat trying to put a 205 on a modulad found a little easier way by putting a ratchet strap around tyre which pushed tyre onto bead plenty of wax paste and eventually got a seal looking at making a bead seating tank from either a lorry air tank has any one made one of these and what did you use chris

On Saturday with 25mins before the end of the event Mikes 90 rolled a Simex off the bead

we borrowed a T max compressor from Honiton hobbit

we used a recovery strop around the tread then a stick to tighten the strop the compressor blew the tyre up and onto the rim.

unfortunatley we didn't have a High lift either so we used a strop around a near by tree and winched the car into the air to effect the above

Why didnt you just use a winch around the tyre, rather than faffing about with strops?

Remove the valve core, this allows you to get more air in there quicker and so will seat the bead. Once the tyre is on the bead you can put the core back in a blow the tyre up as normal. I had to do four 33inch tyres at work that way :angry:
