Ive actually seen that before..I was watching a show on discovery channel about the guys that race across the ice and snow. When they have to change a tire that was the same thing they did to get back into the race really fast. Im not sure how well that will work on a regular tire though.

well I know it has to do with gas expansion, but I'm not sure how exactly it would work.

basically the flame creates a vacuum. think of an atomic bomb, remember how it blows out then gets sucked inward and upward? same concept here only on a much smaller scale.

i saw that a long time ago...

and if you look towards the end, it looks like it deflated enough for the bead to come unseated again

the vid should be titled, how to reseat the bead on a tire with wd-40

the explosion forces the tire back on the bead, once the fire goes out it begins to contract, basically need to start filling the tire as soon as it seats onto the bead
