When it comes to the car scene, there are fads that come and go. Some stay around for a while but many fall by the wayside as they aren’t popular enough to gain a movement to keep them sticking around and keep the fanboys interested.

One of the current fads that we aren’t sure will stay or not is stretching tires. Basically, a group of enthusiasts takes a tire that is a little bit too small for a wheel and, as the name implies, stretches the tire so that it will fit, providing a different look. It might not be the safest thing ever but if it floats your boat, more power to you. The uploader of this video says “It’s meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second.”

Erm… ok.

This time, we are taking an inside look at a little bit of a tire fitting session as these guys attempt to make a tire stretch and go through a little bit of a learning curve before they get to their final destination of a job completed.

Check out the video below that will take you inside of how to stretch a tire and how not to stretch a tire. Is this something that you would ever find yourself doing to your car? We probably recommend consulting with your local professional before trying this out for yourself.
