    wow.. you don't need all the crap that guy has in the top vid.

    get the tyre on. sit it the way up that the tyre is most snug. about 7 seconds of tesco value hairspray in. leave a little trail of it on the tyre. light the trail. poke with big wooden stick so the flame catches the spray inside the tyre. big pop. inflate tyre. change underpants.


    if the stretch is bigger and the tyre doesn't even sit tight you have to get inventive. to fit 195 on a 9j SSR i lightly bunged up the gap with a WET length of denim from an old pair of jeans. Then did the above.


    be careful. do it outside. if you're not sure get someone who's done it before. I'll do it for a fiver :thumbs::wack:

    nearly setting fire to my kitchen wasn't very fun at the time :wack:

    it was raining outside.. i figured meh.. feck it.. got set up.. was using a small piece of lit card to light it and make the pop. it popped and the rush of air sent the flaming piece of cardboard flying across the kitchen like a small fireball and landed on a shelf i couldn't reach.
