    Do you have to have a bead breaker for the rear on a trials wheel, been jumping up & down on it just can't break the bead. Evil or Very Mad

    Not a clue but just a thought, Do you have a big vice you could squeeze it in?

    you are gonna need a compresor. take the valve out to allow air in quicker and bump the wheel on the floor as you blow in.
    If that doesnt work, use a tie down strap and put it around the outer circumferance of the wheel pulling it in as tight as you can. this should push the tyre out to the beed for it to seal up.
