Tires. Visually inspect tires during each walk around inspection. This inspection includes
checking tires with a tire gage. Inflate, repair, or replace as necessary those found to be low,

Refer to FM 55-21, TM 55-601, and TM 743-200-1 for additional instructions on processing, storage,
and shipment of materiel.
Vehicles that have been removed from storage for shipment do not have to be reprocessed if they
will reach their destination within the administrative storage period. Reprocess only if inspection
reveals any corrosion or if anticipated in-transit weather conditions make it necessary.
When a vehicle is received and has already been processed for domestic shipment, as indicated on
DD Form 1397, it does not have to be reprocessed for storage unless corrosion and deterioration
are found during the inspection upon receipt. List on SF Form 364 all discrepancies found because
of poor preservation, packaging, packing, marking, handling, loading, storage, or excessive
preservation. Repairs that cannot be handled by the receiving unit must have tags attached listing
needed repairs. A report of these conditions will be submitted by the unit commander for action by
an ordnance maintenance unit.
