Good watch.
Everybody loves fire?

I use a wrench on my beadlocks... it also works.

I have always had more luck with spraying the starter fluid on the inside of the tire, rather than around the bead. Good Job!

It tells the time

I have double beadlock/HMMWV rims on the JK but I am just running bare 16.5's on the trailer. That was the trailers tire

Cool video....I saw this on tv years ago on a documentary for some expedition in the South Pole(?).

Question.....Do you have any eyebrows now though?

Nice video. "everybody loves fire" lol

I've seen my dad do this a few times when changing tires at home but it's been years. Thanks for the refresher.

Ether works good for this! Just spray it in and toss the match.
Yep, used to do this all of the time when I was a heavy equipment mechanic. Only way to really get beads seated those big tires.

That dude needs to learn how to toss matches and skip the lighter.

ummm..I WAS spraying inside the tire. I was spraying into the gap between the rims and tire. :grinpimp:

What "helped" was flipping the tire over. It could not jump the huge gap on that one side. first time I flipped the tire over it set just fine.
Those are some like 10" wide rims, they sucked ass to get the bead to set on all the rims. Setting it on like a 8" rim is easy, most times you can do it just by laying on the tire.
