damn tires

im trying to strech 215s on a set of jeep grand cherokee rims.
i HAVE put 205s on them but i know they fit because theyve been on another cars rims and the sidewalls are stretched i guess.

i bought 5 new tires at tirerack, 215 75 15 and i cannot get the sidewalls wide enough apart. this is because these are new tires. i crammed lawn edging in between and they only stretch a wee bit after 4 days.

there is a huge gap between the beads, id say at least 1.5inches. any ideas?
i tried rope and stick to torniquet it, and doesnt help. i tried brake cleaner and just caught my hand on fire.
