Airman Taylor Simmons, 362nd Training Squadron F-16 crew chief apprentice course student, measures for axel stretch. Although a very rare occurrence, axel stretch could cause the tire to not fit snuggly on the axel and would lead to a wobble. A slight wobble has the potential to break off the safety mechanism that holds the tire on and lead to the aircraft skidding off the runway. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Robert L. McIlrath)
