Ever wonder how to remove the runflats from xl's or xzl's??
This method was the best.....
Theres a ghost in the window
naaaa just the kids watching..... from a safe distance. i used chains for the last set i did. the inserts kinda pop out. with the straps, they only fell out. was kinda surprised. but we used a little wd-40 this time.
wow that looks safe
Getting out of bed in the morning isn't safe... getting hurt while removing runflats was pretty much the least of my worries, there are bigger and more dangerous things to spend my time worrying about.
got a better idea brain child?? Other than the can of wd-40 on the ground, what is not safe about the situation? Im really curious. PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME
jsut the two vehicles tuggin i dunno not my cup o tea but i don't have any better ideas it just looks scary
looks as though one vehicle was tugging while the isnoozsnu was standin still, I think I see wheel chokes. Did chain work better, I would think it would only becuase once the runflat lets go you dont have all that kinetic energy bound up like you would when using the strap. looks fun, just stay low in the truck. Thats how I drive when I go through south central LA for work sometimes. Drive with your head barely over the dash.
Yeah, the Isuzu was just the anchor. The straps worked WAY better than the chain. They don't fly out or anything... they just fall out on the ground like a hookers premie baby in an alleyway. You don't have to tug on them too hard (as long as you spray them w/ the WD40) and they just pop out. No need to duck your head, but the neighbors were wondering WTF was going on out there!
aha in that case i guess not to bad just interesting
I was expecting to see the suzi's bumper popped off in one of the pics.
I'm betting the straps absorbed any shock much better than the chain. Not the first thing I'd try but I'm certain I would get to it eventually. I've removed axles from the bed of my truck by strapping to a tree and driving away(when I was weaker and had no one to help me out at the time).
That would have made the situation more interesting, but like it was said...we really didn't have to pull THAT hard... but hard enought that we did drag the Isuzu a few feet on the first one . That is when the WD40 and the rocks behind the tires came into play...after they the came right out!
