I had one I f'd with over and over... finally took it took a shop and they couldn't get it either...

Finally a guy came over and put axle grease on it and it seated right in.

Go figure

I had a big ole mud tire a few years back that would not pop out all the way ,,,after several attempts with soapy water and no luck , I looked around my shop and found an open bottle of STP oil treatment (very slick stuff) , I wiped it around bead with a rag and aired it up , it poped out on first try.
