Shipping Aircraft Tire Assemblies by Air

December 15, 2019

Serviceable tire assemblies are considered dangerous since they are typically inflated to high pressure. Essentially, when tire assemblies are shipped by air, the pressure inside the tire increases once the plane reaches altitude. This rise in pressure could cause an over-inflated tire to explode in the cargo hold and compromise the structural integrity of the aircraft. Aircraft tires that are not mounted on the rim are not considered dangerous as they are not under pressure and do not pose a safety hazard.
