    lol why pay 10 bucks when you can play with fire.
    spray brake cleaner in the tire for 5-7 seconds, maybe longer with bigger tires. then somehow throw fire at the tire! worked for me

    Did that off road with butane and a long lighter. It worked, but it pinched the lighter in half.

    I do that all the time. I usually just spray a trail of starting fluid from inside the tire, down the side and onto the ground, then just light it with a lighter. Gets me a couple feet farther from the tire, where I feel more comfortable. I still end up losing most of the hair on my arm though.

    Yeah, it does work.
    But....long story short, I blew a 44 off the rim once. Over 10 years ago and I'm still gun shy! Happened while in the service dept at the dealership...after hours....but the show room was open:crazy: .
    Boy, did that ever get their attention:eek1: !
