They got a bunch of these. I'd heard that you need to get
the air hose onto the valve stem immediately, or the tire
starts to suck back in after the explosion. This video,
above, demonstrates it nicely. You can really see the tire
suck in, right away.
it does work on the WB tires also. BUT the best way to re-bead a wheel
barrow tire is to go to the store and buy one of those 'flat free' solid
tires. WB tires are as thin as paper and a pain to keep air in.
All you scholars who think bush messed up..... You ain\'t seen nothin\' yet!
Just wait. You\'ll be cryin\' for mercy after a while with Bro Bama
And other times the whole tire carcass can
literally flail away in pieces, strewing steel
beads and rubber shards all over the place. All
it takes is an improper mix, for those kiddies
deciding to try this at home.
And whoever said shops do that all the time is
full of BS; there are faster methods for any shop
worth its salt and the don't lose the tire
warranty by doing so. Such a mounted tire is
pretty easy to spot; doesn't take much of a
detective. Their insurance companies would take a
pretty dim view of it, too of course.
Irrellevant, but very likely more than you.
Physics is the point here, not how many shops.
I've dealt with explosive situations more often
than I like.
If you don't know what they are, you're shooting
in the dark with all of this. Gimme a stand, air
& a rod & I'll have it down before the guy on
u-tube gets ready to light a match.
Telltale smoothness on part of the rim, tiny
cracks on the oval swipe most likely, a specific
odor inside the tire, occasionally soot up the
rim, and injured bodies laying around. Broken
steel belts are likely too, meaning a failed wall
on the tire.
And yes, I've done it. I've also purposely
exploded them using the same materials. Stopped
before creating throw-off, but broke the bead in
two places, burst bands. I stopped there; too
many people were gathering round.
It was your assertion that "whoever said shops do that all the time is
full of BS". How does physics apply to that?
Could you be any more vague?
Hm. Well, bring me into the light.
You're going to remove the wheel from the vehicle... lock it onto the
stand... seat the bead... remove it from the stand and remount the
wheel... by which lightning-like methods?
What causes that smoothness?
Hm. Might those tiny cracks on the oval swipe, whatever that is, be
caused by no other action?
And supposing by some miracle nobody was injured, like in the video?
Your tires have steel-belted sidewalls?
Why would you do that?
Wasn't the tire in pretty poor condition to continue anyway?
You could be more obviously full of shit.
