how does the tube come into play?
with tubeless tires i can see this, but once both beads are on the tube must be in already in place with the valve stem lined & straight through the rim.

This makes the inside ID large enough to fit over the wheel. Place the tire over the rim and push on....Let go the straps and voila, beads are inside the rim dish and no need to spoon on!
