Why not carry a bead jack like the KoolStop or VAR? Even a Crank Bros Speedier Lever might be enough. Beyond curiosity, knowing why your rims are difficult won't change anything.

You don't need more spacers. Notice cogs 10,11 and 5 have spacers built in. You do need to be sure the loose cogs are assembled with the marking facing out (away from the wheel.)

It's hard to figure how you could put a wheel on wrong with a thru axle. Sounds as if you've really buggered something. Take it to the shop?

Does sound as if some sand might have gotten in there. Maybe a can of computer air? Anyway, no loss if the shifters still work. Paint or tape over the windows if it's a distraction.
