I took this video during an off-road festival in Calico CA last year. It was my friend Mike's UniMOG which popped a bead, which is like a tractor. The procedure was 2-3 seconds of a combustant (engine starter, hairspray, whatever), wait two seconds and then light it. The expansion will hold the tire to the bead for a bit but gotta start pumping air right away. In the video, we had a compressor attached to the value and running.

For real, it worked well...

actually just noticing there are posts of doing this kinda thing all over youtube. perhaps it was not that novel:

Serious off-roaders tend to run as low pressure as possible and pop beads alot. Need to be able to fix quickly on the trails.

But, I was once told that tractor tires are usually mostly filled with water/coolant to provide more weight for traction. Not sure if this is true.
