NEVER INFLATE BEYOND 40 PSI TO SEAT BEADS.
NEVER STAND, LEAN, OR REACH OVER THE ASSEMBLY DURING INFLATION.


USTMA .... https://www.ustires.org/sites/defaul...TruckTires.pdf .... Page #27.

Read everything. It tells what to do if 40 PSI didn't seat the bead.

Have you ever watched a Truck Service Center inflate Truck tires?? The new tire and rim assembly are put into a cage before applying pressure, because the amount of pressure is so great if were to come apart it could kill the tech.
I would bet money it took more than 40 PSI to seat my 125 PSI "H" tires on the rim.
Those numbers and specs sure sound like it pertains to Passenger Tires not heavy Trailer tires.

Maybe you should read page #27 in the reference in my last post.

I try real hard to post the way its supposed to be done; not how some tire shop does it.

I don't see what difference it makes anyway unless you were the one mounting the tires.

Back in my early years as a teenager I started out Mounting car and truck tires. Just Lube them up real good 99% of the time they seated fine. And yes I also change split rims and put them in a cage to seat and blow them up. And I have seen a few of the Rings fly off with lots of force.

Ran a lot of those split rims back in the day, they were a bit dangerous. Yes they were always in a cage in any tire shop I was in .
