Watch A Tire Explode At 170 PSI In Slow Motion

Ever wondered what would happen if you just kept filling your tire with air?

Here’s how YouTube uploader bluesmokeproductions described the test, which I saw pop up on BangShift.

A Carlisle Tire pressurized to over 165psi. When you figure this tire has been out in the sun for more than 15 years, that is a damn fine showing. Failed at an old tire plug.


Remind me to change my tires sooner rather than later.
