Tires for heavy duty vehicles can be very dangerous as you have probably seen in videos over the internet.
In order to prevent injury and damage to everything in the shop, there are specialized companies that build cages that are supposed to contain the damage of a tire explosion.
In order to showcase their product one of the companies made this video that shows how destructive these blowouts can be and how well their cage can prevent damage.
The blast itself sounds like something fired from a battleship cannon and the interesting part is that it was the rim that gave up rather than the tire, if you look close the rim splits in two pieces but the tire is still in one.
Watch the video and find out why you should never stand close to a tire like this while it is getting inflated.
