I have been doing it for years. Have mounted tires on heavy equipment that way. It is not the safest thing. And while we are on the subject.
DON'T TRY THIS WITH A MOTORCYCLE TIRE!!!!
I don't think there is enough side wall to hold it on. It would probably blow the bead right over the wheel. That is when people get hurt.
