5. Flange and Split Lockring.
(a) Align tire valve stem with valve slot in rim.
(b) Position tire over rim and insert tire valve stem through rim slot.
(c) Position lockring with split 180° from tire valve stem.
(d) Snap leading edge of lock ring into rim gutter .
(e) Progressively walk lockring around rim so that lockring is positioned in rim gutter .
Never exceed 3 psi (21 kPa) inflation prior to placing tire and wheel assembly into

(f) Inflate tire to 3 psi (21 kPa) .Ensure that lockring is properly mounted and engaged in rim
6. All Flat Base Rims.
.Always use an inflation safety cage to inflate tires mounted on multipiece rims. Failure
to do so may result in serious injury or death.
Improperly seated side ring flanges or lockrings may fly off during inflation. Never
attempt to seat a side ring flange or lockring during inflation or after inflation. Serious
injury or death could result.
Never inflate tires over 40 psi (276 kPa) to seat tire beads. If beads do not seat. deflate,
demount, and check the tire/rim match. Mount and lubricate according to instructions.
Serious injury or death could result if these procedures are not followed.
When inflating tires in an inflation safety cage, always use an extension airhose and a
pneumatic tire inflator-gage. Failure to do so could cause serious injury.
