Lol I see the bubbles like that all the time. One of my coworkers thought it was a good idea to set the auto pressure hose to 80 psi and see what happens. The bubble popped so loud it was like a bomb ( tire jumped in the air about 3 feet ) . Terrible idea, especially if the rim is damaged. Another horrible situation...don't see this one much.. A kid tried installing 16 inch tires on a 16.5 inch rim, they fit snug but when he went to install/ inflate he was standing over the assembly. Needless to say the assembly exploded about 15 feet in the area after the beads where seated, made him deaf in one ear, and needed serious surgery on his elbow
