    Will an Electronic Engineer do?

    Actually, I think that you have the problem solved.

    Remember: Stress = Strain.

    With a linear spring, this is f=kx and solve for x.

    loosen first!

    If you want to move the rim, you need to loosen the spokes on one side and tighten on the other side. To avoid breaking thing, always loosen first.
