Hello - the balloon is a pressure vessel
the force of the car must be equaled by the force in the balloon pushing up.
Pressure equals force/area.
find the cross sectional area of the balloon (pi x radius x radius) - the max radius parallel to the ground.
Lifting half the car from the side use half it's mass x gravity to give the force.
This allows the pressure to be calculated
use pressure vesel calculations to find the stress produced in the material.
