on the tyre pressure for getting the bead to pop

its not unusual to need 50-60psi to get it fully home.

then set to 42 or what ever you run em at:thumb:

when i worked in a tyre shop some tyres were quite stubborn and a little soap works wonders when fitting.
I run my tires at 32f and 30r, Just makes the bumps a little softer. Info from my racing buddies

It would be more usual to back off your suspension damping and run the tyres closer to the recommended pressures. The result is the same.
The air pressure in your tyres is part of the suspension system.
True tires are part of your suspension, But max inflation on tires is usually rated when said vehicle is loaded. Passengers and cargo, And if I remember max cargo and rider weight is 350# and I weigh less that 200#
