Bucky Lasek tire blowout save

Bucky Lasek racing a 07 Porsche 997 Cup car going into turn 7 at Sebring when the rear tire blows out at over 130mp. It happened as his crew chief was asking him how things were going. Notice his hands on the radio button about to answer when the tire goes and how the one hand goes to the shifter trying to get it down shifted due to it feeling like a gear box lockup.

Mustang EXPLODES Tire on Dyno at 150MPH!
One of the CRAZIEST Dyno mishaps we've ever seen, and extremely scary considering how many Dyno's we've filmed standing close to the cars! This unlucky Mustang owner's tire EXPLODES at around 150MPH (uncertain of exact speed, but top of 5th) on the Dyno. We aren't certain why it was ran through the gears, but you can see the results. Hopefully he can get his new car back up and running soon! ------------------------------------- 1320Video Gear ► http://www.1320video.com/shop/ Facebook ► http://facebook.com/1320videos Instagram ► https://instagram.com/1320video/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/1320video

How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out. Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs. Didn't work at first, but we got there! (Still not as good as in other videos I have seen, but hey..whatever! It's fun!) As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to stretched tires: These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend cruiser. It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second. Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though. On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings, while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on the Nürbrugring). 215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast cornering. In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for me.

Motorcycle front tire blowout KLR
On day 4 of our 23 day motorcycle trip to Alaska, I had a front tire blowout at 60 mph. Fortunately, we were on a straight, lonely road. I am so glad it did not happen earlier in the day, as we were on the million dollar highway, lots of curves, no guard rails and big drop-offs ( Silverton to Ouray Colorado ). The front tube had a ½ inch split on the inside seam. It was a new tube and new tire. My group moved the bike to a flat spot to change the tire, they said we need some blocks. Just then an 18 wheeler stopped and wanted to know if everything was alright. They asked if he had some blocks. He said, Yeah there are some in the back. I told him my front tire blew out, and he said that happened to him twenty years ago and messed up his forearm. I told him Thank You, and he went on his way. There was no traffic on this road. We had spare tubes (3) but only for the back tire. Billy went to town to get a tube; we were about 25 miles north of Grand Junction Co. About the time Billy got back, another biker group stopped to make sure everything was ok. I noticed on the back of one of the bikes were 2 big white Crosses. I think he was a motorcycle minister. It is really good to know that someone is watching over me! THANK YOU tanker driver,and Moto Minister, and everyone that helped out!! Drove the bike back to town, got a new tire and tube, fixed the handle bars, welded up the back brake, used tie downs for the pannier, and the next day we continued on our trip North.
