Making a Spare Tire by Wrapping Duct Tape Around a Bare Rim Actually Works

I have learned a lot of useful things on YouTube: How to fix a leaking shower handle, sharpen handplane irons, detach a Husqvarna lawn tractor deck, et cetera. The platform contains many informative and educational videos that I am grateful for.

On the other hand, the platform also contains videos like the following, which are dedicated to answering questions people generally ask when they’re drunk. Such as: Is it possible to make a functional spare tire out of just a bare rim lined with lots of duct tape?

Although the end result was neat to see, I found the video just about unwatchable. Sploid’s GIF below contains all you really need to see…

…particularly since the fellows in the video don’t even mention how many rolls it took. (Or maybe they did, during the numerous times I had to fast-forward because I was getting the DC’s.) The car appears to be a late’70s/early ’80s Toyota, with 12″ rims and wheels with overall diameters of roughly 22″. While they didn’t appear to match the sidewall heights exactly, I am curious as to how many rolls it would take to generate a functional tire. (But not curious enough to sit through every second of this.)
