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

those must be some strong sidewalls, mine fall off when they dont have air.
