I need to reset the bead of my supper swamper for my plow truck. I have always heard it can be done with starting fluid and I also have seen (on youtube) useing a rachet strap around the center of the tire tread a filling it with air from a compressor. any tips for my first try..
I should not of let it come off the rim but it has a very slow leak and it had not snowed in awhile. I guess it was more flat then I thought and it came off the rim. The tire looks fine to me the bead is intacted as far I can tell. There are a few scuffs in the side wall but the walls must be 1/4" thick. I had to work tonight and my girl said she would drop it off at BIG O tire for me. She said the guy looked at it told it was unrepairable but they could order a new one.. I can't see any problems with it at all. I feel they were just trying to take advatage of a girl with a supper swamper... If it does work I will besure to call and tell them to let them know how I feel..
