I heard you needed a powerful (very high burst volume) air compressor to pop the tire onto the bead. Otherwise, you won't be able to inflate it. I also heard about it being necessary to use bead sealant, since otherwise there might be a slow leak from the sidewall. Is any of that true?

I also read you can use a ratchet strap to pop the bead into place if you don't have a high volume air tank to blast the tire's bead into place. My only concern now is whether I need bead sealant or not.
