Are you sure this has any chance of working? I have always worked under the assumption that there was NO room to fudge bead size on a tire. I am tempted to declare this advice (even in the cautious form you gave it) bogus, but I will have to admit I have never actually tested this particular permutation of it.
Failing someone saying that it does stand a chance of working, I have to disagree firmly on it.
