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.

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.
