I fnally got them on. Just needed to grouse on the internet about it.
Long story short, the issue wasn't setting the outer bead , it was getting the inner bead past the outer rim of the wheel. Normally, a few hops / humping the tire and on it goes. In this case, I had to heat the tire and pry it over. The rest was fine. From what I can see in some of the lug moldings, MT doesn't have the most exacting standards and I'm guessing they are just a little "off". I'll do a more detailed write up in my build thread.
Glad you got it worked out. Just curious if you were using a 5 gallon bucket? I was able to get mine mounted using the bucket to raise the wheel and tire off the ground and it allowed me to press the tires all the way down onto the rims. I did have to use some tire shine gel (slipery stuff). I still had to fill them with air to set the bead the rest of the way. FWIW, I do have different wheel and tire combination.
