depends on how much of a stretch. I made a "cheetah" back in the day.

i have stretched 215/40's on a 10.5.... so yea lol

if your not stretching the living shit out of a tire you can spray some starting fluid in the tire (mounted tire on rim but tire isnt seated)
spray a good bit around the inside of the entire rim between rim and tire. light it on fire, stand back and kick the shit out of it and POP it'll seat.

Ive used that trick a few times too. it works but its dangerous

Do you work at a tire shop? Cheater bar "cheatah", lots of whale semen, and a proper machine to mount them on. Our old machine had multiple air tubes pointed at the lower bead to assist when needed for problem tires that wouldn't seat or for stretched tires. Talk to one of the older installers.

Or if you don't.

Just go to a wheel shop that does lowrider shit too. This scene didn't invent the stretch, those guys have been doing it for a long ass time.

Try a wheel shop, even if you mount them and stretch them yourself per say, still have to balance them. Unless balancing went out of style too. Most shops will mount and balance for $10-15 a wheel/tire.

Or everyone should wear a properly sized tire suited to the right size wheel. Skinny jeans, skinny tires.... whats next. If you had a size 12 foot would you wear 8's around?

Sorry bout all that, to each his own.
