    I doubt it because the tire is not on a rim. Sure makes us think though. And you are right, I too have seen some tires go flying. Best if they are going away from you!

    Those suckers can pull right off the rims! My dad had an old pick up, bad mount job I guess but that dang thing worked off the rim and went flying. My dad had just said "i think there's something in the tire, you hear that thumping?" Thank goodness we were on a pretty secluded back road but I'll never forget that jolt when the rim hit the road instead of the tire. Needless to say I learned a few new curse words that day :)

    Maybe the guys in the bucket use an old tire as a bumper( I keep an old tire in my pickup bed for just that reason). Just left it up there.

    When I was a senior in high school, a friend of mines family owned a junkyard and anothers had a construction company. One night about a week before graduation while sitting around, we decided to load up a pick up with 20 old tires and get the cherry picker from the job site of the other guy and drop them down the flagpole at school:).
    In the end we got about five on before we chickened out and took off.
    The next day they had the maintenance guys out there with every cutting device imagineable trying to get them off.
