One time I overinflated a bike tire tube in front of my face. Made an amazing pop. Caused temporary ringing-in-the-ear deafness. :(
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
I agree, Ken is a total tool.
Taco Bell makes tires?
That tire is only good for necklacing now.
I was not expecting it to do that to the cage.
This is what I think will happen every time I inflate my car tires.
I didn't have that problem before today.
Weird. So it looks like the tire itself didn't blow out, but the wheel gave way, smashing into the cage. Is that right?
Yep. Cages like this are now mandated by OSHA due to the hazard of multi-piece rims failing like this. A number of truckers still die on the regular from exploding rims.
A single piece rim like an alloy car rim generally fails due to the bead on the tire breaking first. A good deal less lethal.
Thanks, I was waiting for that answer.
I know a guy who makes these.

I wish that was true. It would be fascinating.
and now your tire is properly seated!
That tire was assassinated from a train.
