Tire planter

I did it! I turned a tire inside out!
I used a bolt cutter to cut through the cable buried where the tire meets the rims. Then sawed from the 8 cuts out to the corners. Then flipped it over and started pushing on a corner. Once that was going I tugged on one of the flaps that I'd cut before and that section turned inside out. Once I had 3 sections done I went to the other side of the tire and started pushing the corner with my feet while pulling on a flap. It was hard, but it finally went pop and was all but done.
It might be easier with 16 cuts instead of 8.

I am guessing it wasn't one of those tires with the steel wires in it, eh?

Oh, it totally was. That's what the bolt cutter was for.
