Starter fluid and Ether also work well (but only in moderation!)

there is nothing more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge.

I think it's just to get a bead. Probably not much pressure.

we used to do this at the shop when we had a large tire that simple would not bead, (even with the cheetah)

Done it several times. Running low pressures without beadlocks can pull a tire loose in the mud and rocks.

Done this many times before on skid steer loader tires. We used to stock up on starter fluid just for this.

I have done this in the middle of nowhere changing a flat with a deputy holding the flashlight for me. He was cracking up when I did it, the flash is a little brighter at night.

He had never seen it done before but I used my ex's hair spray instead.

you only have the pressure for an instant. we used to do it on big rig tires. seems like a really bad idea if you've never seen it before.
