are 17x2 tires on 17x1.35 mag rims possible? seating troubles

I having trouble getting the bead of these 17x2 tires to seat on my 17x1.35 mag rim. Half of the tire is seats on the lip by the nozzle and the other half is too far down in the rim. I have tried over inflating them to push it out with no luck and have removed and reinstalled them multiple times. Is it impossible for these tires to fit my rims or am I just really bad at this? thanks in advance

Make sure the tube isn't stuck under the bead on the other side. With only a few psi in the tube pinch the bead and try to get it to even out, and then inflate it. Usually when one side is too low, the other side is too high.

no pinches, seems like the washer on my tube is too big? It doesn't sit evenly in the rim? I guess I've got to track down a different one.
