What is bead seating pressure mean on a tire?

Excessive bead seating pressure (in excess of 40 psi) places extreme stresses on the tire beads that are forced onto the rim flange in a distorted manner. Such stresses may cause damage to the tire components and may result in tire failure. NEVER INFLATE BEYOND 40 PSI PRESSURE TO SEAT BEADS.
