Reminds me of the late 60s when I kerbed a tyre on my Mum's car and wanted
to reverse it on the wheel to hide the damage (I know, I know).  Went to a
local garage where the chap gave me a thing like a slide hammer in reverse
to break the bead.  Could I get enough effort into it?  Could I 'eckerslike.
He was a big beefy Swede and had it off in two goes.  Like the idea of
driving over it, although I don't think I'll try it with my chrome wires.
