GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
PART 1: SAFETY – MOUNTING THE TIRE
IMPORTANT: BE SURE TO READ THIS SAFETY INFORMATION.
Make sure that everyone who services tires or vehicles in
your operation has read and understands these warnings.
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH CAN RESULT FROM FAILURE TO
FOLLOW SAFETY WARNINGS. No matter how well any tire
is constructed, punctures, impact damage, improper inflation,
improper maintenance, or service factors may cause tire failure
creating a risk of property damage and serious or fatal injury.
Truck operators should examine their tires frequently for
snags, bulges, excessive treadwear, separations, or cuts. If such
conditions appear, demount the tire and see a truck dealer
immediately.
The US Department of Labor Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) provides regulations and
publications for safe operating procedures in the servicing of
wheels. Please refer to OSHA Standard 29 CFR Part 1910.177
(Servicing Multi-Piece and Single Piece Rim Wheels).
Specifically, note that the employer shall provide a program
to train all employees who service wheels in the hazards
involved in servicing those wheels and the safety procedures
to be followed. The employer shall ensure that no employee
services any wheel unless the employee has been trained and
instructed in correct procedures of servicing the type of wheel
being serviced, and shall establish safe operating procedures
for such service.
BFGoodrich® Truck Tires provides the following information
to further assist employers to comply with that initiative.
Tire and wheel servicing can be dangerous and must be done only by trained personnel using proper tools and procedures.
Failure to read and comply with all procedures may result in serious injury or death to you or others.
Re-inflation of any type of tire and wheel assembly that has been operated in a run-flat or underinflated condition (80% or less
of recommended operating pressure) can result in serious injury or death. The tire may be damaged on the inside and can explode
during inflation. The wheel parts may be worn, damaged, or dislodged and can explosively separate. Refer to RMA Tire Information
Service Bulletin on potential “zipper ruptures” – TISB Volume 33, Number 3 (December 2007).
RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association) recommends that any tire suspected of having been run underinflated and/or
overloaded must remain in the safety cage, be inflated to 20 psi OVER maximum pressure marked on the sidewall, and then
be inspected. Do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure for the wheel.
Be sure to reduce pressure to regular operating pressure before placing back in service if the tire has been deemed serviceable.
Use of starting fluid, ether, gasoline, or any other flammable material to lubricate, seal, or seat the beads of a tubeless tire can
cause the tire to explode or can cause the explosive separation of the tire and wheel assembly resulting in serious injury or death.
The use of any flammable material during tire servicing is absolutely prohibited.
Any inflated tire mounted on a wheel contains explosive energy. The use of damaged, mismatched, or improperly assembled tire
and wheel parts can cause the assembly to burst apart with explosive force. If you are struck by an exploding tire, wheel part, or the
blast, you can be seriously injured or killed.
Re-assembly and inflation of mismatched wheel parts can result in serious injury or death. Just because parts fit together does
not mean they belong together. Check for proper matching of all wheel parts before putting any parts together.
Mismatching tire and wheel component is dangerous. A mismatched tire and wheel assembly may explode and can result in
serious injury or death. This warning applies to any combination of mismatched components and wheel combinations. Never
assemble a tire and wheel unless you have positively identified and correctly matched the parts.

ZIPPER RUPTURES
TIRE INSPECTION
A fatigue-related damage, with or without a rupture, occurs
in the sidewall flex area of steel radial light and medium truck
tires when it is subjected to excessive flexing or heat. This zipper
rupture is a spontaneous burst of compressed gas, and the resulting
rupture can range in length anywhere from 12 inches to 3 feet
circumferentially around the tire. This is caused by the damage
and weakening of the radial steel cables as a result of run-flat,
underinflation, or overload. Eventually, the pressure becomes too
great for the weakened cables to hold, and the area ruptures with
tremendous force.
The RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association) states that
permanent tire damage due to underinflation and/or overloading
cannot always be detected. Any tire known or suspected of having
been run at 80% or less of normal operating inflation pressure
and/or overloaded, could possibly have permanent structural
damage (steel cord fatigue).
The RMA has issued a revised Tire Industry Service Bulletin for
procedures to address zipper ruptures in certain commercial vehicle
tires. The purpose of the bulletin is to describe the inspection
procedures for identifying potential sidewall circumferential
ruptures (also known as “zipper ruptures”) on truck/bus tires and
light-truck tires of steel cord radial construction. Zipper ruptures
can be extremely hazardous to tire repair technicians. Careful
adherence to proper repair procedures is crucial.
For more information contact RMA at info@rma.org
or visit www.rma.org.
Tire inspection should always include a thorough inspection of
both sidewalls and inner liner, as this may reveal any potential
damage condition that would cause the tire to become scrap.
Examine the inner liner for creases, wrinkling, discoloration, or
insufficient repairs, and examine the exterior for signs of bumps
or undulations, as well as broken cords, any of which could be
potential out of service causes. Proper OSHA regulations must be
followed when putting any tire and wheel back in service. After
the tire has been inflated to 20 psi in a safety cage, it should
undergo another sidewall inspection for distortions, undulations,
or popping noises indicating a breaking of the steel cords. If this
is the case, immediately fully deflate and scrap the tire. If no
damage is detected, continue to inflate to the maximum pressure
marked on the sidewall. Do not exceed the maximum inflation
pressure for the wheel. Any tire suspected of having been run
underinflated and/or overloaded must remain in the safety cage,
be inflated to 20 psi OVER maximum pressure marked on the
sidewall, and then be inspected.

PART 2: MOUNTING AND DEMOUNTING TUBELESS TIRES
In order for a tire to perform properly, it must be mounted on
the correct size wheel. The following are general instructions for
mounting and demounting BFGoodrich® Truck tubeless tires.
Specifics for 19.5” wheels are detailed in the Mounting Tubeless
Tire section (Page 5). For additional detailed instructions on
mounting and demounting truck tires on particular types of
wheels, refer to the instructions of the wheel manufacturer or the
RMA wall charts.
components during the sudden release of the contained gas
of a single piece wheel. Refer to current OSHA standards for
compliance. Do not bolt safety cages to the floor nor add
any other restraints or accessories. Cage should be placed 3
feet from anything, including the wall. Never stand over a tire
or in front of a tire when inflating. Always use a clip-on valve
chuck with an in-line valve fitted with a pressure gauge or use a
presettable regulator. Additionally, ensure there is a sufficient
length of hose between the clip-on chuck and the in-line
valve (if one is used) to allow the service technician to stand
outside the trajectory zone when inflating.
Trajectory zone means any potential path or route that a wheel
component may travel during an explosive separation or the
sudden release of the pressurized gas, or an area at which the
blast from a single piece wheel may be released.
The trajectory may deviate from paths that are perpendicular
to the assembled position of the wheel at the time of
separation or explosion. See Rubber Manufacturers Association
Tire Information Service Bulletin Volume 33, Number 3
(December 2007) for more information.
TUBELESS TIRE MOUNTING/DEMOUNTING
USING A MOUNTING MACHINE
There are several tire changing machines available for the
mount and demount procedure. Consult the manufacturer’s user
manual for the machine you are using as each operates differently.
Full lubrication of the wheel and beads is still required. Inflation
process requirements remain the same.
DIRECTIONAL TIRES
Truck tires featuring directional tread designs have arrows
molded into the shoulder/edge of the outer ribs to indicate the
intended direction of tire rotation. It is important, to maximize tire
performance, that directional tires be mounted correctly on wheels
to ensure that the directionality is respected when mounted on the
vehicle.
For example, when mounting directional drive tires on a set of
8 wheels, use the drop centers as a reference. Four tires should be
mounted with the arrows pointing to the left of the technician and
four tires with the arrows pointing to the right. This ensures that
when the assemblies are fitted onto the vehicle that all tires can
be pointed in the desired direction of rotation.
Directional steer tires should be mounted in a similar fashion,
one each direction, to ensure both are pointed forward.
Once directional tires are worn greater than 50%, there is
generally no negative effect of running them in a direction opposite
to the indicated direction of rotation.
Operating directional tires from new to 50% worn in the
opposite direction of that indicated on the tire will result in the
premature onset of irregular wear, excessive noise levels, and
significantly reduced tread life.
2. TIRE AND WHEEL LUBRICATION
It is essential that an approved tire mounting lubricant be used.
Preferred materials for use as bead lubricants are vegetable based
and mixed with proper water ratios per manufacturer’s instructions.
Never use antifreeze, silicones, or petroleum-base lubricants as this
will damage the rubber. Lubricants not mixed to the manufacturer’s
specifications may have a harmful effect on the tire and wheel.
The lubricant serves the following three purposes:
• Helps minimize the possibility of damage to the tire beads from
the mounting tools.
• Helps ease the insertion of the tire onto the wheel by lubricating
all contacting surfaces.
• Assists proper bead seating (tire and wheel centering) and helps
to prevent eccentric mountings.
Apply a clean lubricant to all portions of the tire bead area
and the exposed portion of the flap using sufficient but sparing
quantities of lubricant. Also, lubricate the entire rim surface of
the wheel. Avoid using excessive amounts of lubricant, which
can become trapped between the tire and tube and can result in
tube damage and rapid air loss.
1. SELECTION OF PROPER COMPONENTS AND
MATERIALS
a. All tires must be mounted on the proper wheel as indicated in
the specification tables. For complete tire specifications, refer
to application specific data books.
b. Make certain that wheel is proper for the tire dimension.
c. Always install new valve cores and metal valve caps
containing plastic or rubber seals.
d. Always replace the rubber valve stem on a 16” through 19.5”
wheel.
e. Always use a safety device such as an inflation cage
or other restraining device that will constrain all wheel
4
CAUTION: It is important that tire lubricant be clean and free
of dirt, sand, metal shavings, or other hard particles. The following
practice is recommended:
a. Use a fresh supply of tire lubricant each day, drawing from
a clean supply source and placing the lubricant in a clean
portable container.
b. Provide a cover for the portable container and/or other means
to prevent contamination of the lubricant when not in use.
For lubricants in solution, we suggest the following method
that has proven to be successful in helping to minimize
contamination and prevent excess lubricant from entering the
tire casing: provide a special cover for the portable container
that has a funnel-like device attached. The small opening of the
funnel should be sized so that when a swab is inserted through
the opening into the reserve of lubricant and then withdrawn,
the swab is compressed, removing excess lubricant. This allows
the cover to be left in place providing added protection. A
mesh false bottom in the container is a further protection
against contaminants. The tire should be mounted and inflated
promptly before lubricant dries.
either side.) It is imperative that the tire always be mounted and
dismounted only from the short side. Failure to do this will likely
result in damaged tire beads that could eventually cause rapid
gas loss due to casing rupture. This is particularly important on
19.5 inch RW (reduced well) aluminum wheels which, contrary
to the norm, have their drop center located close to the disc side.
Do not use 19.5 x 7.50 wheel for the 305/70R19.5 tire size.
All 19.5 inch tubeless wheels should be mounted from the
short side. Care should be taken to ensure that any internal
monitoring system molded in the tire or on the wheel is not
damaged or dislodged during this service.
5. Do not use any kind of hammer. Severe inner liner damage
may occur resulting in sidewall separation and tire destruction.
Use only proper mounting levers;
3. PREPARATION OF WHEELS AND TIRES
a. Always wear safety goggles or face shields when buffing or
grinding wheels.
b. Inspect wheel assemblies for cracks, distortion, and
deformation of flanges. Using a file and/or emery cloth, smooth
all burrs, welds, dents, etc. that are present on the tire side of
the wheel. Inspect the condition of bolt holes on the wheels.
Rim flange gauges and ball tapes are available for measuring
wear and circumference of aluminum wheels.
c. Remove rust with a wire brush and apply a rust inhibiting paint
on steel wheels. The maximum paint thickness is 0.0035” on
the disc face of the wheel.
d. Remove any accumulation of rubber or grease that might be
stuck to the tire, being careful not to damage it. Wipe the beads
down with a dry rag.
DO NOT USE A DUCK BILL HAMMER.
Re-inflation of any type of tire and wheel assembly
that has been operated in a run-flat or underinflated
condition (less than 80% of normal recommended
operating pressure) can result in serious injury or
death. The tire may be damaged on the inside and
can explode during inflation. The wheel parts may
be worn, damaged or dislodged and can explosively
separate.
MOUNTING TUBELESS
1. Inspect the condition of the bolt holes on the wheels, and look
for signs of fatigue. Check flanges for excessive wear by using
the wheel manufacturer’s flange wear indicator.
2. Replace valve core, and inspect valve stem for damage and
wear. Michelin recommends always replacing the valve stem
and using a new valve stem grommet. Ensure valve stem is
installed using the proper torque value. 80-125 in/lbs
(7-11 ft/lbs) for standard aluminum wheels and 35-55 in/lbs
(3-5 ft/lbs) for standard tubeless steel wheels. Ensure the valve
core is installed using the proper torque value of 1.5-4 in/lbs.
To prevent galvanic corrosion on aluminum wheels, lubricate
the threads and O-ring of the valve stem with a
non-waterbased lubricant before installation.
3. Apply the tire and wheel lubricant to the rim surface of the wheel
and bead area of the tire. When applying lubricant to the wheel,
lubricate the entire rim surface from flange to flange. The tire
should be mounted and inflated before the lubricant dries.
4. With short ledge up, lay the tire over the wheel opposite the
valve side and work it on with proper tubeless tire tools, making
full use of the drop center well. Drop center wheels are typically
designed with an off-set drop center to accommodate wheel
width and brake clearance. This creates a “short side” and a
“long side” on the wheel. (Some drop center wheels are designed
with a symmetric wheel profile facilitating tire mounting from
INFLATION OF TUBELESS TIRES
1. Lay tire/wheel assembly horizontally and inflate to no more
than 5 psi to position the beads on the flanges. OSHA dictates
no more than 5 psi outside the cage to seat the beads.
2. To complete the seating of the beads, place the assembly in
an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)
compliant inflation restraining device (i.e. safety cage) and
inflate to 20 psi. Check the assembly carefully for any signs of
distortion or irregularities from run-flat. If run-flat is detected,
scrap the tire.
3. If no damage is detected, continue to inflate to the maximum
pressure marked on the sidewall. RMA (Rubber Manufacturers
Association) recommends that if any tire suspected of having
been underinflated and/or overloaded must remain in the
safety cage at 20 psi over the maximum pressure marked on
the sidewall. Do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure for
the wheel. RMA requires that all steer sidewall tires are inflated
without a valve core.
4. Ensure that the guide rib (GG Ring/mold line) is positioned
concentrically to the rim flange with no greater than 2⁄ 32” of
difference found circumferentially. Check for this variation by
measuring at four sidewall locations (12, 3, 6, 9 o’clock).
5
DEMOUNTING OF TUBELESS TIRES
If bead(s) did not seat, deflate tire, re-lubricate the bead seats
and re-inflate.
Note: As a general guide in vibration analysis, the 30/60/90
rule may apply:
.030-.060 (1⁄ 32 to 2 ⁄ 32 inch) = No action is required. Limited
possibility for vibration exists, and this range maximizes the
ability to balance properly.
.061-.090 (2 ⁄ 32 to 3⁄ 32 inch) = Corrective action would be to
perform the 3 R’s, after deflating the tire.
– Rotate the tire on the wheel
– Re-lubricate the tire and wheel (ensure the wheel is very
clean)
– Re-inflate ensuring your initial inflation is with the tire lying
horizontal (3-5 psi max)
>.090 (>3⁄ 32 inch) = Perform 3 R’s if mismount is indicated;
however, when the reading is this high, it usually requires
checking runout on these component parts: wheels/hubs/
drums/wheel bearings.
5. After beads are properly seated, place the tire in safety cage
and inflate assembly to maximum pressure rating shown on
the sidewall, then reduce to operating pressure. Check valve
core for leakage, then install suitable valve cap. Consider the
use of inflate-thru or double seal valve caps for easier pressure
maintenance.
1. If still fitted on the vehicle, completely deflate the tire by
removing the valve core. In the case of a dual assembly,
completely deflate both tires before removing them from
the vehicle (OSHA requirement). Run a wire or a pipe cleaner
through the valve stem to ensure complete deflation.
2. With the tire assembly lying flat (after deflating the tire), break
the bead seat of both beads with a bead breaking tool. Do not
use hammers of any type to seat the bead. Striking a wheel
assembly with a hammer of any type can damage the tire or
wheel and endanger the installer. Use a steel duck bill hammer
only as a wedge. Do not strike the head of a hammer with
another hard faced hammer – use a rubber mallet.
3. Apply the vegetable-based lubricant to all surfaces of the bead
area of the tire.
4. Beginning at the valve, remove the tire from the wheel. Starting
at the valve will minimize chances of damaging the valve
assembly. Make certain that the rim flange with the tapered
ledge that is closest to the drop center is facing up. Insert the
curved ends of the tire irons between the tire and rim flange.
Step forward into the drop center and drop the bars down,
lifting the tire bead over the rim flange. Hold one tire iron
in position with your foot. Pull the second tire iron out and
reposition it about 90 degrees from the first iron. Pull the
second tire iron towards the center of the wheel. Continue to
work tools around wheel until first bead is off the wheel.
5. Lift the assembly, place and rotate the tire iron to lock on
the back rim flange, allow the tire to drop, and with a rocking
motion remove the tire from the wheel.

PART 3: MOUNTING AND DEMOUNTING TUBE-TYPE TIRES
A tire cannot perform properly unless it is mounted properly on the correct size wheel. The following are general instructions for
demounting and mounting BFGoodrich® tube-type tires. For detailed instructions on mounting and demounting truck tires on particular types
of wheels, refer to the instructions of the wheel manufacturer or the RMA wall charts.
Do not re-inflate any tires that have been run underinflated or flat without careful inspection for damage. If runflat damage is detected, scrap the tire. A tire is considered run-flat if it is found to be less than 80% of normal
recommended operating pressure. This can result in serious injury or death. The tire may be damaged on the inside
and can explode during inflation. The wheel parts may be worn, damaged or dislodged and can explosively separate.
1. SELECTION OF PROPER COMPONENTS AND
MATERIALS
position of the wheel at the time of separation or explosion.
NEVER WELD OR APPLY HEAT TO A WHEEL ON WHICH
A TIRE IS MOUNTED.
a. All tires must be mounted with the proper tube and flap
(if required) and wheel as indicated in the specification tables.
For complete tire specifications, refer to application specific
data books.
b. Make certain that wheel components are properly matched
and of the correct dimensions for the tire.
c. Always fit a new tube in a new mounting. Since a tube will
exhibit growth in size through normal use, an old tube used in
a new mounting increases the possibility of tube creasing and
chafing, possibly resulting in failure.
d. Always install a new flap in a new mounting. A flap, through
extended use, becomes hard and brittle. After a limited time,
it will develop a set to match the tire and wheel in which it
is fitted. Therefore, it will not exactly match a new tire and
wheel combination.
e. Always install new valve cores and metal valve caps
containing plastic or rubber seals. For tires requiring
O-rings, be sure to properly install a new silicone O-ring at
every tire change.
f. Always use a safety device such as an inflation cage or other
restraining device that will constrain all wheel components
during an explosive separation of a multi-piece wheel, or during
the sudden release of the contained gas of a single piece wheel
that is in compliance with OSHA (Occupational Safety and
Health Administration) standards. Do not bolt restraining device
to the floor. Never stand over a tire or in front of a tire when
inflating. Always use a clip-on valve chuck with an in-line valve
with a pressure gauge or a presettable regulator. Additionally,
ensure there is a sufficient length of hose between the clip-on
chuck and the in line valve (if one is used) to allow the service
technician to stand outside the trajectory path when inflating.
Trajectory zone means any potential path or route that a wheel
component may travel during an explosive separation, or the
sudden release of the pressurized gas, or an area at which the
blast from a single piece wheel may be released. The trajectory
may deviate from paths that are perpendicular to the assembled
2. TIRE AND WHEEL LUBRICATION
7
It is essential that an approved tire mounting lubricant
be used. Preferred materials for use as bead lubricants are
vegetable based and mixed with proper water ratios per
manufacturer’s instructions. Never use antifreeze, silicones,
or petroleum-base lubricants as this will damage the rubber.
Lubricants not mixed to the manufacturer’s specifications may
have a harmful effect on the tire and wheel.
The lubricant serves the following three purposes:
• Helps minimize the possibility of damage to the tire beads
from the mounting tools.
• Helps ease the insertion of the tire onto the wheel by
lubricating all contacting surfaces.
• Assists proper bead seating (tire and wheel centering) and
helps to prevent eccentric mountings.
Apply a clean lubricant to all portions of the tire bead area
and the exposed portion of the flap using sufficient but sparing
quantities of lubricant. Also, lubricate the entire rim surface.
Avoid using excessive amounts of lubricant, which can become
trapped between the tire and tube and can result in tube
damage and rapid gas loss.
CAUTION: It is important that tire lubricant be clean and
free of dirt, sand, metal shavings, or other hard particles. The
following practice is recommended:
a. Use a fresh supply of tire lubricant each day, drawing from
a clean supply source and placing the lubricant in a clean
portable container.
b. Provide a cover for the portable container and/or other means
to prevent contamination of the lubricant when not in use.
For lubricants in solution, we suggest the following method,
which has proven to be successful in helping to minimize
contamination and prevent excess lubricant from entering the
tire casing: provide a special cover for the portable container
that has a funnel-like device attached. The small opening of
the funnel should be sized so that when a swab is inserted
through the opening into the reserve of lubricant and then
withdrawn, the swab is compressed, removing excess lubricant.
This allows the cover to be left in place providing added
protection.
A mesh false bottom in the container is a further protection
against contaminants. The tire should be mounted and inflated
promptly before lubricant dries.
1. Before loosening any nuts securing the tire and wheel
assembly to the vehicle, remove the valve core and deflate
completely.
If working on a dual assembly, completely deflate both tires.
Run a wire or pipe cleaner through the valve stem to ensure
complete deflation. This is to prevent a possible accident.
2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly from the vehicle and place
on the floor with the side ring up.
3. Run a wire or pipe cleaner through the valve stem to clear the
valve stem.
4. Apply lubricant to all surfaces of the bead area of the tire. Use
the duck bill hammer, with the rubber mallet as a wedge, or a
slide hammer.
5. For two-piece wheels, remove the side ring by pushing the
tire bead down. Insert the tapered end of the rim tool into the
notch and pry the side ring out of the gutter. Pry progressively
around the tire until the side ring is free of the gutter.
6. For three-piece wheels, remove the lock ring by pushing the
side rings and the tire bead down. Insert the tapered end of the
rim tool into the notch near the split in the lock ring, push the
tool downward, and pry the lock ring outward to remove the
lock ring from the gutter. Use the hooked end of the rim tool
progressively around the tire to complete the removal, then
lift off the side ring.
7. Turn the assembly over.
8. Unseat the remaining tire bead from the rim, and lift the rim
from the tire.
3. PREPARATION OF WHEELS AND TIRES
a. Always wear safety goggles or face shields when buffing or
grinding wheels.
b. Inspect wheel assemblies for cracks, distortion, and
deformation of flanges. Using a file and/or emery cloth,
smooth all burrs, welds, dents, etc. that are present on the
tire side of the wheel. Inspect the condition of bolt holes on
the wheels. Rim flange gauges and ball tapes are available for
measuring wear and circumference of aluminum wheels.
c. Remove rust with a wire brush and apply a rust inhibiting paint
on steel wheels. The maximum paint thickness is .0035” on the
disc face of the wheel.
d. Remove any accumulation of rubber or grease stuck to the tire,
being careful not to damage it. Wipe the beads down with a
dry rag.
DEMOUNTING TUBE-TYPE TIRE
MOUNTING TUBE-TYPE TIRE
Any inflated tire mounted on a wheel contains
explosive energy. The use of damaged, mismatched
or improperly assembled tire and wheel parts can
cause the assembly to burst apart with explosive
force. If you are struck by an exploding tire, wheel
part or the blast, you can be seriously injured or
killed. Do not attempt to dismount the tire while the
assembly is still installed on the vehicle. Use proper
tools to demount or mount wheel parts. Never use a
steel hammer to seat wheel parts – use only rubber,
plastic, or brass-tipped mallets. Striking a wheel
assembly with a hammer of any type can damage
the tire or wheel and endanger the installer. Use
a steel duck bill hammer only as a wedge. Do not
strike the head of a hammer with another hard-faced
hammer – use a rubber mallet.
Re-assembly and inflation of mismatched wheel
parts can result in serious injury or death. Just
because parts fit together does not mean they
belong together. Check for proper matching of
all wheel parts before putting any parts together.
Inspect the tire and the wheel for any damage that
would require them to be placed out of service.
Mismatching tire and wheel components is
dangerous. A mismatched tire and wheel assembly
may explode and can result in serious injury or
death. This warning applies to any combination of
mismatched components, and wheel combinations.
Never assemble a tire and wheel unless you have
positively identified and correctly matched the
parts.

5. Close the beads.
6. Apply a proper tire lubricant to the inside and outside
surfaces of both beads and to that portion of the flap that
appears between the beads. Make sure that excess lubricant
does not run down into the tire.
7. Follow Steps 4 through 8 of the “Mounting of Tube-Type
Tires.”
1. Insert the proper size tube into the tire and partially inflate
(3 psi) to round out the tube (with larger sizes it may be
necessary to use bead spreaders – see below for mounting
instructions).
2. Insert the valve through the flap valve hole. (Make sure the
reinforced patch that is directly over the flap valve hole is
facing outwards.) Then insert the remainder of the flap into the
tire.
3. Check the flap wings to ensure against folding. This is easily
accomplished by placing your hand into one tire side, then the
other, and then running your hand along the entire flap wing.
4. Inflate the tube until the flap is secured against the tire wall
and the beads start to spread apart, making sure not to exceed
3 psi.
5. Apply a proper tire lubricant to both beads, exposed flap, and
fully to the rim. Make sure that excess lubricant does not run
down into the tire.
6. Lay the wheel flat on the floor with the gutter side up. Place
tire, tube, and flap on the wheel, taking care to center the
valve in the slot.
7. For two-piece wheels, place the side ring on the rim base so
that the ring split is opposite the valve stem by placing the
leading end (end without the notch) of the ring into the groove
in the wheel, and progressively walk the side ring into place.
Ensure the ring is fully seated in the gutter.
8. For three-piece wheel, place the side ring on the rim base and
stand on the ring to position it below the gutter rim base. Snap
the leading end (end without the notch) of the lock ring into
the gutter of the rim base, and progressively walk the lock ring
into place. Ensure the ring is fully seated in the gutter.
INFLATION OF TUBE-TYPE TIRES
1. An inflation line with an extension (30” minimum), in-line
gauge, and a clip-on valve chuck should be used for inflation.
Remove valve core and lay the assembly flat on the ground.
Using an approved restraining device, inflate partially to
seat beads to no more than 3 psi. While the tire is still in
the restraining device, make sure all wheel components are
centered and locked properly. If not, the tire must be deflated,
broken down, relubricated and reinflated. Do not attempt to
seat the lock ring by means of a hammer.
2. Deflate the tire by removing the inflation line. This is to allow
the tube to relax, thus, eliminating any wrinkles or uneven
stretching that may have occurred during primary inflation.
3. With the valve core still removed, place the tire and wheel
assembly into an approved safety cage or other approved
restraining device meeting OSHA (Occupational Safety and
Health Administration) standards, and reinflate the tire to
the pressure shown on the sidewall in order to ensure proper
bead seating. Then adjust the tire to the proper operating
pressure. Never stand over a tire or in front of a tire when
inflating. Always use a clip-on valve chuck with an in-line
valve with
a pressure gauge or a presettable regulator and a sufficient
length of hose between the clip-on chuck and in-line valve
(if one is used) to allow the employee to stand outside the
trajectory path when inflating. RMA (Rubber Manufacturers
Association) requires that all steel sidewall radial tires are
inflated without a valve core.
4. Reinspect the assembly for proper positioning and seating of
all components.
5. Check for leaks, and install a suitable valve cap.
MOUNTING OF TUBE-TYPE TIRES USING
MANUAL SPREADERS
1. Follow Steps 1 through 3 of the “Mounting of Tube-Type
Tires.” However, before inserting the flap into the tire, position
two bead spreaders in the following manner:
a. Place the first at a 90° angle to the valve.
(Flap is positioned between the spreader and the tube.)
b. Place the second directly opposite the first.
c. Spread the beads and insert the flap.
d. Close the beads, remove spreaders.
2. Follow Steps 4 through 8 of the “Mounting of Tube-Type
Tires.”
MOUNTING OF TUBE-TYPE TIRES USING
AUTOMATIC SPREADERS
Do not re-inflate any tires that have been run
underinflated or flat without careful inspection
for damage.
If run-flat damage is detected, scrap the tire.
A tire is considered run-flat if it is found to be
less than 80% of normal recommended operating
pressure.
1. Spread the tire beads.
2. Inflate the tube to approximately 3 psi.
3. Insert the tube into the tire.
4. Insert the valve through the flap valve hole.
(As mentioned, the flap reinforced valve area must face
outwards.) Insert the remainder of the flap into the tire.
