This is what I use to break the bead with a little ATF and it works.

I made a tool for dismounting rims smaller than 12" that can be found here:

Post 14 shows it rather well. Post 28 shows the HF tire changer I bought. I have used it to break down even the 5" rims off the JD 68. Works rather well. I opted for the larger tire changer so I could mount it to concrete. This changer will work for car wheels, also.
Good luck.

The HF tire changer I just bought for $29.00 last week. There is a Labor day sale going on.
