Fixing a Tyre

Recommended Posts

I typed Ice, because other places on the planet have snow/ice/glaciers, etc, and this is a common method for popping a tyre back on the bead.

Desert drivers use the same method I think.



I saw the same thing when I was desert bashing in Dubai, though I don't think it works quite so spectacularly as the air temp is higher to start with therefore the expansion cannot be as fast or as large?

It's best done with the large flexible wall ballon tyres...like the Micky Thompsons etc...I tried this method on a quad bikers tyre during the DC once when we couldn't get it back on the rim and succeded in setting the tire alight.

Yes it works...as you can see by the video..... but I didn't feel comfortable doing it.
