Yuo can try this.

This really works, but be VERY careful, it can be VERY dangerous!

We use bin bags some times, if the rim is not good .. they work well and as there is no weight in them, no need to remove

We have a bead blaster at work - 25L air tank with a 2 inch pipe coming out of it and a twist to open valve - charge to 150psi on the compressor, stick fitting against edge of rim, twist valve and booooooofffff done

Bloody good for dusting in awkward corners too

I can't say I have ever had too many problems seating tyres with a normal 100psi workshop compressor, take the valve core out as suggested. Narrow tyres on relatively wide rims are the worst combination.

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
