None of JunzieB's new 195/55 Nokians wanted to seat on the 16x8.5s basketweaves. So, we convinced them with a little science.

what did you fill it with? Propane?

Ether (starting fluid). And it's not filled, it's just a sniff. I use a torch for flame source though, lighting a bomb with a grenade is fun. Also, NEVER EVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME.
