The last one had a safety cage, which they didn't use.
Truck tires do blow up, from time to time and cause injury.

I wonder how you get a truck tire as big as those to seat on the rim without resorting to exploding it on?

Visit a truck tire shop and see how they do it.
Or, Google it.

Default Re: Echo tells you how to safely mount tires...

On my motorcycle tires I used to remove the valve stem and wrap a 1/2 inch rope around the tire, twisted tight with a large screwdriver. Then it was off to the gas station. Remember when they had free air? Remember when the air hose actually worked?

Actually I think knowing how to explode the tire on might come in handy in the middle of no where, with no other help, in a fix the tire or die/suffer situation.

It might be good to watch videos of people dying/being injured eploding tires on so youd know what NOT to do...

You can sometimes use a tiedown strap to do it.

On the topic of tires, does anyone have an opinion on the Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires? My bike will need a set soon and I'm leaning toward these.
Thanks.
