Shove the rim into the tire with a twisting motion. I've actually had these pop all the way in without using any tools, so get as much done by hand before you start with the bars.

Use a rolling motion to get the spoon back out without un-doing the work.


Walk around the rim until you get the whole thing inside the tire.

Note how I'm using my feet to keep the bead from coming back off the rim. I usually can't use two spoons here because I need the slack in the sidewall.

Keep walking the bead around the rim like you've already done 3 times.

Sometimes the hi-lift can come in handy again here. Interco's have such a thick bead they can be a little more difficult than most tires.



I'm not going to get into how to re-set the beads. I think that will just cause arguments on the safety of various different ways. I've done starting fluid, used an 11 gal. air tank, etc. You can use starting fluid safely if you have a brain about it, but if you are taking that route, I have some experience to share...The pressure and heat can weaken the glue between the metal insert in your standard rubber valve stems. I use metal valve stems because of this. I would recommend removing the stem all-together for various reasons, but at least pull out the schrader valve. I won't deny the possibility of starting fluid being the only way to get back to the trailhead. That is why I carry epoxy and hose clamps. I have repaired stems that the insert shot (yes, shot) out of by coating it with epoxy and clamping it together.
Done. Thanks Terry. Hope you all find this informative.

The other thing that should be pointed out on this thread is:

A lighter truck riding on larger tires can air down further than a heavier truck on smaller ones.

So a reg cab on 33x12.5 can go quite a bit lower safely than a V6 Double Cab with an ARB bumper and winch on factory 31x10.5.

My "Trailhead" deflators came with a little chart; I don't have it on me right now, but IIRC a "loaded for camping" V6 tacoma on stock tires would air down to 15 psi. You could go lower in the rear if the bed was unloaded, until the bulge in the rear sidewalls about matched the bulge in the fronts.

My reg cab, on 33x11.5 I usually go down to about 13-14 in the front, a little less in the rear. As Especk is showing, I can probably run a bit lower than that.
