    That trick became very popular after Top Gear Artic Adventure! However, in one of stories that followed about guys from Artic Trucks they were discussing this particular method...

    One of the guys honestly say that they had done it just for the show, and would never do it again, as it is VERY DANGEROUS! He also mentioned a mishap he and his friend had had, blowing up the tire, fender and almost putting whole truck on fire...

    So, use a compressor instead!

    I've done this many times Very easy to do when you have a lot of tyre stretch. Be aware and watch your fingers!

    You can also use under arm deodorant in a spray can.

    Late reply but yes, same as mentioned previously, I have successfully used deodorant (less "volatile" then butane). I used it on one of my mudder's that wouldnt get on the bead at all. Can't say id try it on lower profile style 'car' tyres ever though...
