it heats up the air inside the tire, so as you know, hot air expands, and it pushes the tire back into place. they used that method on an expedition to the south pole.

haha I saw similiar videos watching some tire grooving videos one night. Scares me shitless. Even when I'm airing up or down, I can't help but think about tires blowing up in my face. Probably one of my greatest fears.

Lol I've done this trick, lost my arm hair twice lol. It works great most of the time. I had 35's on my Blazer and 38's on my 3/4 ton Chev. I lost tires off beads a couple times with both, and had to try it lol. It was easier than changing the tire. Oh and afterwards make sure you take it to a tire shop to get all the crap cleaned out of your tire and wheel. Trust me, it can cause more pain if you don't.

The safety person at works says we have the knob turned to high when we light it. I always like to have that loud pop and fireball when I light it. I will sacrifice arm hair for a fireball.

I have done this when on the side of the road with a 18 wheeler tire. Better than spending $300 for a service call.

Just make sure that you have an air hose ready to put air in there or it can fall off the bead again.

Watched a few on yourtube and noticed if they didn't add air right away it would come back off

You also need to pull the valve stem core out.
