This Labor Day, Dreamakers got to the shop early to put in work. They demonstrate how they stretch a couple of tires without a cheetah (bead-blaster). Sorry the videos dont display since they are not on youtube/vimeo but they are worth the click. Very funny.
Beat that tire like it stole something!!!
Here he shows us a less safe method. Dont forget the goggles and ear plugs.
while a 265/30 on a 11.5 doesn’t seem like a stretch, don’t be fooled by the “265”. The sidewall on a 30 is shorter so there is less room to stretch. To put in in perspective, the stretch would be similar to a 245/35 on a 11.5″
As you can see, this car is going to need more than stretched tires.
