Default Umm... Don't weld on mounted tire assemblies?

While I've never heard of someone welding on an inflated tire assembly, apparently it happens enough to warrant a video from Bridgestone showing the devastating effects of doing so. There are some cool facts at the end about what else can cause this phenomena.

that's absolutely crazy, I wonder how many blow'd up tires you could chaulk up to AZ heat and some overheated brakes.

mining haul trucks can have tires catch fire from overheated brakes, extremely rare though.

No joke. On my last trip to LA saw a semi blow a rear trailer tire and launch the tread straight up in the air. I thought, man that would suck if it came down on my car!

A fellow I used to work with had a split rim fail just like that part with the dummy, except he was standing beside it, not lying on it. Half of the rim went through the ceiling of the building and he went backwards into/through a cinderblock wall.
