Split Rim Tire safety, tire safety, split rims
The Diamond T Split Rims were originally designed for combat trucks so that flat tires were easily changed in the field. But due to poor design they became very unstable over time and were quickly labeled “Widow Makers” or Suicide Rims” as a result of the outer rim exploding from the tire during inflation, often resulting in serious injury and even death.
We sent our Split Rings out to a tire service center located in the country since they have experience dealing with farm vehicles that still use these type of Split Ring Rims. Lets watch Mark as he and Keith with KO Tire talk about dangers of these types of rims and watch as they install the repaired tires for the Diamond T.
