TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 WHEELS, RIMS, TIRES TIRE INJURIES Ply or Tread Separation: Ply  or  tread  separation  as  shown  in  Fig.  18  can  result from underinflation, overloading, or high speed. Driving  a  tire  that  is  flat  or  seriously  underinflated  can cause    unrepairable    cord    breakage,    ply,    and    even    tread separation.    The  amount  of  damage  is  directly  proportional  to the    amount    of    underinflation    and    distance    driven    in    this condition. Fig. 18  Tread Separation Result of Underinflation, Overloading, or High Speed Cord Breakage: The proper deflection of tire sidewalls is inhibited by the increased    tension    caused    by    overinflation.        Overinflation increases strain on the cords in the tread area and the tire loses its     ability     to     absorb     ordinary     road     shocks.     Under     this overinflated condition an impact can cause either an X-break or a  diagonal  break.  Four  pounds  extra  pressure  for  high  speed driving  is  not  considered  overinflation,  providing  the  maximum inflation of the tire is not exceeded.  Reduce cool air pressure to recommended level.  Never "bleed" air from a hot tire. Even  with  properly  inflated  tires,  cords  can  be  broken when  a  tire  is  crushed  between  an  object  like  a  concrete  curb and steel rim of the wheel.  The position and breakage of cords is determined by the angle and force of impact. Fig. 19  Broken Cords Caused by Severe Blow INNERTUBE INJURIES Chafed Innertube: Innertubes  that  are  chafed  by  the  tire  can  be  prevented by proper mounting techniques. First inflate innertube to 10 psi, deflate  and  reinflate  innertube  to  recommended  pressure.  This procedure will prevent chafing. Damage  to  both  the  innertube  and  inside  of  tire  can  be caused  by  not  cleaning  foreign  matter  from  tire,  innertube,  or wheel  at  time  of  assembly.    Thoroughly  clean  tire,  innertube, and  wheel  removing  all  foreign  matter,  dirt,  rust,  and  labels from all surfaces.
