Pressure to seat bead on 31 laws

Have a little problem one of the 31x9 laws I bought isn't seated totally on the rim. The back side is on fully and front is about 3/4 the way around is seated. I aired up to what is said max pressure to seat bead was and no luck.

How much air is safe to use? or should I just take it and get it unmounted and remounted at a tire shop

leave the side that is seated alone, let out the air, unseat the side that is partial, apply a good amount of lube (your choice) to tire and wheel, re air....

we use palmolive soap. When dry, it acts like glue.

use the palmolive, inflate the tire to 40 then hit the rubber tire with a hammer right on the sidewall where it's not seated yet. sometimes we have to bounce the tire on the ground to make it pop.
