    that isnt wd40. its aerosol ether. wd doesnt have the flash properties to do that. it burns too slow.

    its not just a flat...you gotta pop a bead

    the trick resets a bead...but you gotta be quick with the air or it'll suck itself right back off the bead

    I use ether to pop those pesky tractor tires up on the beads. Mine usually stay aired up.
