After some heated discussion between me, a moab, and a rc4wd narrow beadlock I came up with the following.
Put the tires in the freezer for 30 minutes or so. Get one tire out and put it on the wheel, then another, and so forth.
The purpose of this I found is it slightly shrinks the tire and makes it quite a bit stiffer. Works pretty good for me.

Harold had the same trouble with one of his. Put in the freezer for 2-3 days. Still didn't do the trick.

He had it over at my house. I took a shot at it but couldn't get it on. So Randy tried. What he did is take the foam out of the tire completly. Finally got the stuborn bead on the wheel. Then put the foam in from the other side. The foam was expanding the tire just enough.

The way Proline is packaging there tires is the problem. They shove the foam in there. Sometimes it isn't set inside the tire right. So this stretches out the tire.
