    Correct me if I am wrong but it is the built in tube that is stuck, not the tire bead.
    On a tire this size it would simply be easy enough to use a commercial tire mache's bead breaker. My older...

    Hate to be the critic but you should go over the math some more. The struts are way to few and far between to offer much of any resisting to twist / buckling of the spars.

    If I am correct that tire has an integral tube? I expect said tube has bonded itself to the rim.
