This SAE Information Report covers the important fundamental maintenance and service precautions for all off-road single-piece and multi-piece rims. Detailed information on specific procedures concerning mounting, demounting, maintenance and service of a particular type, style, or design of off-road rim assembly can be obtained by consulting rim or tire manufacturers or distributors. These procedures and service precautions are guidelines to be considered in preparation of the machine service manual and operator's manual and workplace procedures. It is the intent of this Information Report to allow for further development and review of these guidelines and then make this document a Recommended Practice.
Several changes to the document have been discussed to enhance safety precautions that are noted in the document.
