What did I miss...?
With a steel cable inside the beads, how would it stretch to the point of making the inner diameter of the tire larger? That inner diameter of the tire does not stretch. That's why every rim has a well in the center. If the bead would stretch, you would have a problem on your hands, i.e. wheels...
