You know that; I know that. But GI's, especially pre 1973 were always looking for the easy way out. After wrestling a new tire on and pounding on the safety ring, you were supposed to flip that heavy wheel over to inflate it. Or maybe there was a tire inflation cage in the motor pool, but that still required work and effort to roll it there.You ALWAYS turned any tire with a ring , ring down when inflating. Once one sees what a flying ring can/ will do is all it takes. Safer to work on tracks, lol.
