This is what happens when you overfill a semi truck tire (by a LOT)


A video showing just what might happen if you overfill a semi truck tire ends with a bang, so to speak. 

In the clip, a few people conduct the experiment in a Mythbusters-type setting. According to the video creator, it took filling up the semi truck tire for a full 37 minutes before it finally exploded. 

The first explosion can be seen at 7 minutes 25 seconds, and a high-speed camera version can be seen starting at 8 minutes and 55 seconds. 

Check out the experiment that you shouldn’t try at home, below.
