Whenever I had to work on a truck tire with infamous "safety ring", I would put the tire on the floor under the arms of the car hoist, hook up the hose, turn on the compressor and go hide in the office. When I heard it POP, I would turn off the air to the hose, go across the street and have a cup of coffee. After putting the tire back on the truck or semi, would thank whatever diety watches over fools and gas station flunkies for sparing me for another day.
I also made it a point to get clear of any truck in the lane next to me on the highway. Still makes me nervous when I'm beside one.
