    Take the bead screws out ? :roll: :roll: ops: ops: ops: ops: Just goofing !!
    Did the tire shops try breaking the bead WITH air in the tire ? No pressure allows that floppy sidewall to collapse before enough force can be applied to bust the bead.

    I cut the side wall and carfully used a die grinder with a small bit to cut the bead--- better than beating it with a hammer
