Split Rims Hazards

Split Rims can be extremely hazardous. Workers are commonly injured by split rims  during mounting or placing the slip rims on a vehicle.  Although OSHA mandates cages be used, explosions still occur.   Efforts to ban split rims have met with opposition from industry.

Tire / Rim Explosions

Inflated tires contain a large amount of stored energy. For example, the sidewall  of a typical commercial vehicle (CV) tire has over 34 tons of force acting on it. Tires are designed to withstand this but if they are damaged or used while flat, or significantly under inflated, they may fail.

The force can then be released explosively at an angle of up to 45 degrees from the rupture (which is often, but not always, the face of the sidewall), resulting in a destructive air blast and the ejection of high-speed particles. If the wheel is not restrained, it can fly yards through the air.

Failure of multi-piece (‘split rim') wheels can result in explosive ejection of component parts. These types of tire explosion have led to numerous fatalities.
