THA SUGAH RAIN - 2009-08-08 but the tire then immediately deflated again. I dont know how impressed I should be.
splatterbabble - 2009-08-08 You find the damage that way, which is actually helpful.
mouser - 2009-08-08 Because done right, you can actually reset the tire to a seal this very same way.
In artica and other northern regions (while there's ice), this is what they do when their tired pop out. They run tired under very low pressure for maximum grip but they have a tendency to pop off. So set them back in this way and repressurize them if they need to adjust.
pastorofmuppets - 2009-08-09 I think that's what they're doing here, too...just getting it back on.
Ageusiatic - 2009-08-18 Mouser has it exactly right. This was featured on Top Gear and another Jeremy Clarkson special, and I think one of them called it "The Icelandic trick". This seems to be popular among very, very cold places.
Andonyx - 2009-08-08 You can also set a tire on a bead using a very similar method.
Desidiosus - 2009-08-08 Works better with lighter fluid.
Camonk - 2009-08-08 That definitely shouldn't work because it seems like such an awful idea.
