If the tire has been driven on when underinflated or overinflated, or there is obvious or
suspected damage on the tire or wheel components, the tire must be completely deflated.
To deflate the tire, attach inflator gage to valve stem. Inflator gage must not be hooked up
to air hose. Press down inflator gage handle until all air pressure has been exhausted.
Stand out of the trajectory area or personal injury or death may result.
Wheel/tire must be inflated in a safety cage or personal injury or death may result.
Tire air pressure must be checked properly or serious injury or death may result.
If tire has been run flat, or is overinflated or underinflated when tire pressure is measured
and operating terrain is compared to Table 3-3, or if wheel/tire assembly has obvious or
suspected damage, it is not safe to adjust tire pressure. Completely deflate tire according to
Para 3-6, and remove the tire from the axle. Failure to follow these procedures may result
in serious personal injury or death.
