Default Tire flip tips

We recently acquired a used MRAP tire at for my buildings workout yard. I've done tire flips in the past but always as a messing around thing never all the time. Anything I need to keep in mind? According to this article I've been doing them very wrong.

In the past I had always done as a DL movement, today I tried it with my hands wide and dropping my hips way down it seemed to work but now I have a "tire burn" all the way across the top of my chest and my tops of my arms. Not sure if I was doing something wrong or it's normal? All I know is that when I shower tonight it will hurt, badly.

Any tips or articles you guys with experience are willing to share would be appreciated, as well as tire flip workouts. Today we did flips to one end of the yard and then the other guy flips it back, ended up being 12-13 flips per person, one way.
