We are glad to inform you that we have one more video which can be placed in the DIY category. Personally, we find these videos really useful and educational too! Hope that you feel the same! If you do, we will be more than happy to continue with our work. Anyways, let`s see what`s on today`s menu. In the recording below, you have the possibility to see how to stretch tires, with the help of FIRE!
There are plenty of videos showing you exactly the same, however, we chose to present you this particular one because there are two failed attempts recorded on tape! We really appreciate these guys, honesty. It is good to let people know that the process isn`t successful in the first try. Moreover, for the purpose of the video, the guys are using two 195/45R15 tires with intention to stretch them on 9Jx15 BBS alloy rims. The final destination of these wheels is a 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend cruiser! Additionally, this car isn`t made to be driven fast, because the stretched tires reduce the handling. It is made to look good.
At last, follow this link to read a nice forum thread telling everything you needed to know on how to stretch tires!
