I bought a gallon of it (lifetime supply) at my auto parts store because that is the smallest quantity they had. I have also seen people use Windex to lubricate the bead with good results.
IF I read your post correctly - you used zip-ties to REMOVE your tire? I've only used them to install tires, so far.
