TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 WHEELS, RIMS, TIRES CHAPTER 1-WHEELS, RIMS Road failures are generally caused by either overloading  or  oversight  in  the  maintenance  program.    To save hours of downtime a simple visual check of the following components should periodically be made. Cracked Rims Cracked rims or flanges are a result of metal fatigue or overloading,   thus   periodic   inspections   should   be   made   to assure safe operations, Fig.  1. Fig.  1 Rim Corrosion Corrosion   is   occasionally   found   on   both   tubed   and tubeless  type  rims,  Fig.    2.    If  the  corrosion  is  minor  a  wire brushing or buffing' will clean satisfactorily.  The tire mounting surfaces  of  the  rim  can  then  be  painted  with  a  good  quality frame    enamel    or    coated    with    a    non-water    suspended lubricant.  If corrosion is excessive, fatigue cracks may have developed in the rim base or the ring may not be seating   in   the   gutter.      The   wheel   in   this   case   should   be replaced. Fig.  2 Damaged Or Cracked Rings Broken or cracked rings are generally caused by rough use  of  tire  tools  or  improper  initial  seating  in  the  rim  gutter. Bent   or   sprung   rings   are   caused   by   rough   or   improper removal, and cannot be properly reformed to seat accurately in  the  rim  gutter.    They  should  be  replaced,  Fig.    3.    When removing the rings they should be worked off in small steps, starting  at  one  point  and  gradually  working  in  one  direction around the entire circumference.
