chesterspl Yea, it could save you a walk or it could leave you with a flat tire, no eyebrows and no hair. I have done it before, it's semi dangerous but not to bad. Just like everyone said, learned it on tractor tires

it is possible, and does happen. the flame travels where it wants, and it can burn into the can.

oxy-acetylene torches and all those style torches have multiple built in safety features to prevent "flash back" and "burn back" and even with these features it can happen. an aerosol can has no safety features.

it is possble, but unlikely

afrats Not suer how comfy I am with an aerosol can and flames. It doesn't take much for that flame to get sucked back into the can and explode.

orange05tj Thats old school right there. I always use a can of starting fluid. get the same results. Anyone who owns or has owned farm tractors knows this trick.

BILLG I have done it many times with no problems at all.

reevesdieselyj I have done that multiple times in different situations. But it is scary every time.

jgano23 ya, x2. that is only something that you use in an extreme emergency. it is cool to watch the video though.

ccain Yeah, it's interesting but dangerous. I'm sure that guy has done it about a million times but it only takes one redneck on the trail to blow himself up, burn himself or burn down the woods around the trail. Not interested. Thanks
