Tire shop keeps operations rolling

Staff Sgt. Joseph Spangler, 459th Maintenance Squadron crew chief, inspects a nose landing gear wheel assembly tire for proper bolt thread protrusion, washers, bearings, cups, cones, rollers and valve caps inside a 459th Air Refueling Wing hangar on Joint Base Andrews, Md., Dec. 6, 2015, after returning to the shop for repair. Tires in need of repair are broken down, cleaned and sent to a non-destructive repair shop. Then, the 459 MXS rebuilds and inspects the wheel hardware and adds the wheel assembly back into the Air Force supply system. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff. Sgt. Kat Justen)
