Alternative winch use

Not sure if any of you have done this or seen this, but we were faced with a stubborn 44" Bogger on a crappy 15" rim and no strong source of air (my air tank was empty)...so we demounted the rim, wrapped the winch rope around the tire, clenched down and provided the weakish ARB compressor (old type) air...it reseated in a second, we released the winch as the tire filled up in order not to strain the weak compressor

In hindsight, we could have done the same proceedure on the tire without taking the rim off as there are no body panels on both trucks, but we didn't know better before demounting...

Here are some pics...
