how would that work? :confused:

 

Expanding air 'pops' the tire back on the hub. I've done it many times for low pressure spin offs (beach, etc) and on tractor/wheel barrow tires. First saw it being done

by some guys crossing the Antarctic in specialized Toyota Land Cruisers . The average air pressure was 2.5 PSI and they would frequently spin the tire out of the rim and

that's how they get it back on.

I have used a bicycle inner tube to seal the gap between the tire and rim so a low pressure source can inflate the tire.

It costs you the cycle tube. but is safer than using the fire method, but not as fun.

A great tire,gravel doesn't get caught in them as bad as the AT's.
