8-4.   TIRE, WHEEL, AND RUNFLAT MAINTENANCE (Cont'd) TM 9-2320-280-20-2 8-12 Change 2 WARNING •  Never use tubes in wheel assemblies. Use of a tube defeats built- in safety features, and could allow the wheel to come apart under pressure, resulting in serious injury or death. •  Use only replacement parts specified in TM 9-2320-280-24P for bias tires. Eight bolt rims were designed for use with bias tire components only. Wheels assembled with components not specified for bias tires could cause the assembly to separate under pressure, resulting in serious injury or death. NOTE Magnesium runflats are going to be phased out of the military supply system. They will be replaced by a rubber runflat kit. If rubber runflat kit is received for use with bias tires, follow assembly instructions in para. 8-5. 1. Apply one 11-ounce tube of gel lubricant (2) around inside of tire (1) at crown area (3). 2.
