I have done this with starter fluid and WD-40. They both work,
spray the fluid into the hole between the tire and rim. I have
done this maybe 30- 40 times and only had 1 bad experance doing
it, the last time I did it the tire did not inflate but it did
catch on fire. Lots of fun tring to put it out. No water, no
shovel no dirt.
