fluffy I love safety mandates that boil down to, "Don't do this, and especially don't do it like this."
I wonder what the failure mode for welding on a wheel without the tire mounted is. I suspect it involves wheels breaking and flying off at highway speeds, tipping over the semi and injuring random passers-by.
SolRo if you're such a cheap shit that you're going to weld a wheel just to save some cash, I doubt you're using a properly trained welder with correct equipment. I suspect explosive deflation from Steve-the-forklift-guy's shitty weld failing at highway speed.
TeenerTot I actually fear this will happen when I'm adding air to my tires.
garcet71283 I think ive seen other videos from this series at work. Theres another good one about repairing heavy machinery in which a guy's hands get pulled into some gears and the fx loook like they are out of a 1980s Sam Raimi movie.
