my guess is that they were using some type of oil to get them spinning and thats what actually caught fire...

Almost looks like they planned it. If it were accidental, you'd think at least one person would freak out. And, it lloks like the fire started about a foot behind the tire.

It'* easy to start tires on fire in a burnout. Just add a little bleach.

Lots of friction and heat there, I'm sure the chunks flying off the tire caught and then it crept back to the wheel. Maybe he was down to the belt by then too and made some sparks? Looks like it was a burnout contest or something, probably was some bleach or other lube used.

THAT is what you call a one tire fire!(Because I only saw one catch on fire)

Actually, it'* pretty hard to get a tire lit. What they did there was run the ires all the way down to the cords. A regular tire would blow at this point, but the heavy cords on those off-road tires just got red-hot from friction, and that'* what caught the rubber on fire.
Very impressive!
