This stuff works real well for hard to seat tire beads. Use undiluted, as it is thick, and pack it around the tire to rim gap. After the beads seats it will push it out and you can reuse it again and again. Diluted it is a good tire bead lube as well.

Never forget Murphy's law
I have some tire Snot That must be similar to the murphy stuff that I use as well on lightly rusted rims as it will seal those annoying rim leaks.

Yup, we used to have a bucket of that stuff in the shop at all times. All the equipment for tire work went away when we stopped doing tire work onsite. The Cheetah tank and a tire handler are the only things left. The wife took them to a repair shop up the hill from work. The Kid there shot enough Brakleen in them to seat the beads and didn't launch them through the roof of the shop Cost me $20 they are on the tractor. I'm sure the hair on his one arm will grow back in a couple weeks
