That'll take a circular saw to pop the bead then...and some railway spikes for rope-plugs for any onroad tyre-repair

Had to put three or four rope plugs in the rear tyre of the Mighty ST on the Great Apline Road around 10km south of Omeo, tyre held enough pressure to get Omeo and back to Bairnsdale and then Melbourne, checked tyre pressure / topped-up air every 100km or so, replaced tyre first opportunity.
