Tire changing can be dangerous and should be done by trained personnel using the proper tools and procedures. Always read and understand any manufacturer's warnings contained in owner's manuals, on the equipment, listed on websites, and molded onto tire sidewalls.
Failure to comply with these procedures may result in faulty positioning of the tire and/or rim parts and cause the assembly to burst with explosive force sufficient to cause serious physical injury or death. Never mount or use damaged tires or rims.
For more information on tire mounting safety and procedures, refer to the USTMA wall chart, "Demounting and Mounting Procedures for Passenger and Light Truck (LT) Tires."
