Has nothing to do with a vaccum, small explosion creates enough pressure in a short period of time to re seat the bead on the rim, add air after, as you will still be flat.
Oldschool 4wheeling trick, starting fluid, straight gas, lots of things work great.

""Is there anything that WD-40 and a lighter can`t fix?"
Yes, and thats why we have duct tape.
Everything else was never meant to be fixed"

Truths.

If it should move and it dosnt, use WD-40,
If it moves and it shouldnt, use Duct Tape.

They do this trick all the time in Greenland. It simple and quick fix that can get you back on the road in no time at all. A good way when you stuck in the middle of frozen wasteland like Greenland and nobody to help you out.

theres no way that fire can burn all the oxygen because WE`RE FREAKIN SURROUNDED BY IT. vaccuum has nothin to do with it.

I don`t think it has anything to do with vacuums or explosions... I think what happens is the flame heats up the air in the tire, and makes it inflate... much like a hot air balloon. That`s why if you put to much you can pop the tire, cause the air expands too much and causes the tire to burst.

Here is the real and full explanation. Yes, the fire burns all the oxygen. Nature abhors a vacuum so more oxygen rushes in quickly to take it`s place and feed the fire, The resulting increase in temperature increases the air`s pressure (inside the tire) expanding the container (the tire) out thus setting the bead. This is one of the reasons an explosion causes a concussive effect (if not contained).

"
llefflar... do you know how vacuums work? When all the air is sucked out of a space, it is considered to be in a vacuum. That is all this is doing. The fire eats up all the air, and creates a suction effect. I might not be explaining it exactly, but its the basic effects. "

Still not really correct. the fire breaks down the bonds, you can`t "eat" air, the air is still there, but most of it was pushed out and condensed and whatnot. But still, yeah, saying an explosion would SUCK the tire onto the rim is pretty retarded.

If you were REALLY good, you could maybe use the WD40 to MELT the bone together. But that`s if you were REAAAAAAALLY good.

Actually, STARTING FLUID is more likely the accelerant,...also, "vacuum effect" WTF? obviously it is just an explosion. That is why you don`t use too much. Seen tires blown off rims before.

"It can`t put out a fire, and it can`t fix a broken bone. Now Duct Tape can be usefull in both of those situations."

If you used the WD40 and lighter to use up all the oxygen in the air, all the fires in the room would go out, so you could extinguish them that way. Sort of.


Probably not the broken bone though.

I have a better idea. Call Roadside Assistance. (Yeah, I know it wouldn`t work out there but I wouldn`t have been there anyway.)

mst4k - it wasnt leaking. He just popped the bead and started filling it with air. If he had just gotten the bead back on the rim it wouldnt have any air in it anyway

here`s the boring explanation. The fire uses all the oxygen thats inside the tire as fuel, and therefor creates a vacuum effect that places the tire back onto the wheel well. You can do it with just about anything that creates fire.

this video is ancient, and all it does is put the tire back on the bead, but this does work.
