O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

That`s about the coolest thing I`ve ever seen! What with all the trouble I`ve had over the years trying to get race tires to take a bead-used WD to lube the bead before, but this guy took one step further. Love it! I`m gonna send that video to our tire specialist on the sprint car team.

Did this many times while drag racing back in the day. Except I used lighter fluid, same result. When you put a 8 inch wide tire on a 10 in wide rim it's about the only way to do it. I would say, If you are thinking of trying this don't use WD40, Petroleum breaks down Rubber. Were as lighter fluid evaporates completely.
