    It use to be a whole lot easier when you could get either. The starting fluid you get today just isn't as explosive? If you light it and it is just burning inside the tire give the tread of the tire a hit with a sledge and that will usealy cause it to blow.

    I especially like the technique of using the spray can and the lighter combo to ignite the tire. Really, that looked like the best method of the few that I watched...

    My uncle and I did this 3 years ago when we replaced the rears on our IH 340, it worked like a charm.

    It just make me wonder who first came up with this idea,,, and for that matter how to milk a cow. I guess those are the successes and the Darwin awards are the failures. Gotta go now my nephew just yelled "Hey watch this' LOL

    Makes you wonder how any intricate process was figured out.

    finding a bean.. roasing it.. grinding it.. pouring hot water over it.. then add milk and sugar... coffee...

    Done it more times than I care to remember - in the jeeping world it is the norm of mounting tires. The only time I felt like danger was when I left the valve in and it shoot out of the tire and drilled in the plywood side of the shop.

    Sure beats the compressor and the rope method by miles of coolness.

    I would only deploy the starting fluid method in some kind of wilderness survival situation.

    I have used one of these (at work) and they work great! Nice and safe
