I am sitting here after spending an hour and a half trying to air up a tire. My jeep has load range e tires and they are so stiff sometimes they are a pia to air up. Part of it may be rim design but I am ready to buy a bead blaster. There are some really cheap ones on amazon but I also want one that isn't going to explode in 2 years because it is so cheap. Some are asme certified, will they be worth the extra money. I can't afford a professional one ($400) but would like to keep my head attached. Anyone have experience with one. And yes I know you can use either but been there done that, I will pass.
IIRC, this is the one we used (it's been 20 years, so I could be wrong):
Or put tubes in. A bead blaster is not fixing the root problem.
One like this in 3-5 ton range will work just fine. And they're handy for other stuff, too.

You have a torch. It won’t take but a few seconds to put enough oxy/acetylene to seat the bead.
Come on be creative.
