    I have done it with butane and aerostart. Don't use too much, two little one second squirts is more than enough. Biggest thing is if the tyre has been laid flat on the ground - it will jump when the butane ignites. the tyre should be balanced with a log/stump under the rim section so that it won't move when the bead reseats.

    Works well - better to use too little than too much.

    i remember many years ago when i was a kid 8 or 9yo, going up to relatives station my grandfathers car rolled a tyre, for the life of me i cant remember what he used but i think it may have been crc. he did it while the rim was still on the car. was very impressive

    here is what once happened to a guy i was traveling in a group with on a glacier and some photos on how this may be used practically when in trouble.

    here is how the tire came of the wheel



    then some digging



    then lifted up with a high lift jack


    the jack then stabled with some robes and the tire adjusted in place.


    at last some gas sprayed underneath the tire


    the next few are pretty self explaining light it up and...




    i knew this method existed since i was a child but those guys driving the ford you may have seen earlier in some of my posts new how it was done they said the trick was not to put too much, better to but too little and try again other wise things can go disastrous as they then demonstrated by giving it a few goes.
