Huge Dump Truck Tire Explosion

Even though it might seem like a tire exploding is a relatively common phenomenon that isn’t really the biggest threat in the world, when tires get bigger and have more pressure inside of them, lots of damage can be done as pieces of rubber and steel cord go flying everywhere with blasts that are backed up by a massive amount of pressure. It can be enough to truly put the hurt on whatever or whoever is near the tire and question when it goes boom.

In this video, we follow along behind a dump truck as it rolls down a road when all of a sudden, a fire comes about. It’s not really clear where the fire is coming from but what is apparent is as the blaze continues to burn, eventually, it eroded the integrity of the tire which caused it to explode and the blast is nothing short of spectacular as it omits a massive boom and sends smoke flying everywhere.

Luckily, it doesn’t look like anyone was within range to be injured by whatever pieces of debris came about from this tire explosion but one thing is for sure, that damage is going to cost a good amount of money. Even if, in an ideal situation, the exploding tire didn’t take anything down with it, I know that a massive piece of rubber that’s supporting weight like this couldn’t possibly be cheap to replace. Long story short, they’re going to have a pretty big headache trying to figure out where to go from here.

Check out the video below that shows you the entire sequence of events that has this massive eruptuon caught on video. This most certainly was not what these guys expected when they set out on a day of work to get their jobs done and go home. I guess it turns out that they’re going to be dealing with a little bit more than they thought they would have to.
