Explosions of air-inflated earth moving tires can be a result of
heat-induced gas combustion inside the tires. The heat gener-
ated by welding or heating rim components, external fire or
excessive use of brakes can result in gaseous combustion. A
tire explosion is much more violent than a blowout. The explo-
sion can propel the tire, rim and final drive components as far
as 1,500 ft (460 m) or more. Both the force of the explosion
and flying debris can cause injury or damage to equipment. All
personnel should be aware of this danger and the actions to
take to minimize the risk.
Improper or misuse of inflation equipment can result in tire
blowout or rim failure.
