Mounting 2000lb Tires with Fire
Hello Everyone, Whoa!!! 1 million views! Let's see if we can keep them
coming. Thanks for the views and please keep them coming. Don't forget to
share the video with your friends. I appreciate it and hope you enjoy the
Dad and I changed out 3 tires on the Clark 290M Earth Mover that were
slick. Usually to get the tire to seat on the rim and hold air we have to
pack grease/tire soap on the rim until it pushes out and seals. We decided
to try a new way that we use on some of the smaller tires around the farm.
This has to be the largest Tire I have ever seen this done on and we were
not sure it would work. Of course I had to have it on video! It takes lots
of fluid to expand the tire properly. The Tire is a 29- 5- 29. I believe
and it either weighs 2,000lbs or around 1,300lbs. The numbers are sketchy.
I said 2,000 in the video because that is what the guy told us when we
bought them. It is huge, that is all I know, I am 6 feet tall for a
reference. Enjoy and thanks for watching! Weston

These Turf tires were so flat from being shipped on pallet from china the
tires would not set the bead no matter what was tried. The only thing that
worked was what you see in this video. Even after putting 2x4 blocks in the
tires and leaving them in the summer sun for 2 weeks they still returned to
the deformed shape from the way they were shipped.
135 PSI Tire Explosion
Grabbed a pair of these off a tractor at the dump hoping they would work on
mine too, they don't. I don't care who you are, a yard tractor tire
holding 120 PSI let alone higher is damn impressive. The noise when it
burst was epic. I was hiding inside the garage with all the doors closed
watching from behind a shield...behind the door. It was like someone boxed
my ears. Very impressive. Interestingly it wasn't the sidewall that
failed, it tore through the tread. No way I am doing that again in town so
the other one will have to wait until I get to the farm.
Mounting tire with starting fluid
I saw a bunch of folks mounting tires with starting fluid on youtube. I
had to replace the valve stem on one of my trucks wheels. I was not able
to mount the tire by using a comealong strap and and air chuck. So I gave
it a try, it works but it reminds me of my "Wheel of Death". I don't think
I'll try it again anytime soon, but still... it worked. Just be willing to
live with the consequences if you hurt yourself. Oh yea....Don't Try This
