Wheels up

A bead breaking machine pushes on a tire that is about to be taken apart for cleaning and inspection Aug. 10, 2016, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. The edge of the tire, known as the bead, can sometimes get stuck to the wheel when under a lot of pressure. This machine makes it easier for the Airmen to disassemble the wheel.
