Information:

The trend to replace biased (cross-ply) tyres with radial tyres, on off-highway earthmoving equipment, fitted with multi-piece rims has resulted in a relatively high incidence of rim failures due to fatigue in service.

Attempts to remove a tyre/rim assembly (ie. wheel) whilst the tyre is still inflated can result in a failure of the rim and components being ejected with considerable force. This is particularly so where the integrity of the multi-piece assembly is dependent on the wheel to hub fixing appliances.
