The video's gone.


But if it's what I think it is, it doesn't work. Mythbusters proved it wrong and it makes sense why.


Yes, you can re-seat the tire with this method, but it doesn't stay inflated. The gas compresses so much when it cools down that it goes right back to flat.

what method is it? with starting fluid? if so i have done this on lo of tirest to seat them, doesnt blow them up, but its will seat a bead just fine then can use air to finish it

Yep. It's a little (??) dangerous, but it is a way of forcing a bead to re-seat if you lose a bead when wheeling at low pressures. If you actually have a flat (a puncture -- a hole in your tire that loses air) this won't do anything for you.
