Put a ratchet strap around the tire and crank it down. That will put more air pressure where it is needed by the beads instead of the center of the tire.

Forgot to mention that tire hold air, it just need the final pop to be perfectly seated

need to add more air even at 40psi

whats the max i can put before the tire blow?

Try the strap and 36psi should be fine.

Also when seating the bead leave the valve core out. This lets air enter the tire quicker, it may help next time.
