TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 WHEELS, RIMS, TIRES Multiple Piece Rims On    multiple    piece    rims    if    it    is    determined    during periodic   inspection   or   during   tire   changes,   that   a   part   is defective it must be replaced. Caution  must  be  observed  when  selecting  the  proper replacement part, an incorrect fit is dangerous.  (See Incorrect Assembly Fig.  5). The side ring, locking ring and base must all    fit    correctly    as    illustrated    in    Figure    5    under    Correct Assembly. MULTIPLE PIECE WHEEL ASSEMBLIES CORRECT ASSEMBLY Fig.  5 ALUMINUM WHEELS Care and Maintenance Aluminum wheels should be periodically inspected both on the vehicle and during tire changes for cracks, loose wheel studs, worn mounting holes or being bent. When checking cap nuts on dual disc wheels, back off outer nut before attempting to tighten inner nut. Whenever  a  tire  is  removed,  clean  off  all  grease  and road dirt.  Use a wire brush or steel wool to remove the rubber from the bead seat. Projections  on  the  side  wall  of  the  gutter  may  cause uneven  seating  of  the  side  ring  and  lead  to  chipping  of  the gutter.    Remove  these  and  other  projections  in  the  mounting area to assure the best possible fits. Nicks and gouges in the vicinity of the fixed flange may lead to rim fracture. NOTE:    Do  not  heat  or  weld  wheels  in  an  attempt  to straighten  or  repair  severe  road  damage.    The  special  alloy used in these wheels is heat-treated, and uncontrolled heating from welding torch affects the properties of the material. To    avoid    possible    corrosive    affects    to    aluminum wheels,  use  only  a  slight  amount  of  water  and  neutral  soap (similar   to   Ivory   Snow,   Dreft,   etc.      no   detergents)   when mounting tires.  Do not use commercial rubber lubricants. Wheel Installation When     installing     aluminum     wheels,     lubricate     stud threads  using  a  petroleum  base  grease  containing  colloidal graphite.  Be certain end of wheel wrench is smooth as it will tear grooves in the wheel around the stud nuts it if is rough. NOTE:    Do  not  allow  dirt  to  enter  the  mounting  area during installation.  See "TORQUE CHART" for correct torque values. Wheel Studs and Mounting Nuts Maintaining   wheel   stud   and   mounting   nut   tightness does  much  to  insure  safe  and  satisfactory  wheel  operation. Loose   wheel   mounting   can   cause   vibration,   shimmy,   tire wear, stud breakage, worn studs, mounting nuts (Fig.  6) and worn   or   elongated   stud   holes   (Fig.      7).   Parts   with   these characteristics   must   be   replaced.   Always   keep   wheel   stud nuts tightened to specified torque.
