I soak them in acetone. I just put about 1/2" of acetone in flat baking pan, put in the tires and cover w/ foil to keep it from evaporating. Let it soak about 5-6 hours and the tire bead comes right off. Flip and repeat. Always has worked for me.

The holes are there to let air out. When you jump and land if there are no holes in the tires it will cause the vehicle to feel spongy, and the suspension will not work properly

2 holes in the center of the tread 180 degrees apart-leather punch works great
