I built a homemade (no-mar clone) and it works great, BUT, that last 8" or so is where you need those little plastic deals that hook onto the rim opposite to hold the tire bead down in the channel to give some relief. I don't have those but threaten to order them everytime I change a tire. I get some more help to try and hold that far side down in the channel, otherwise it will not make the stretch!
