When installing a new tube in a two -piece forklift wheel, make certain that you have torqued down the nuts that hold the assembly together before adding unregulated air from a chuck...just spinning the nuts on the first few threads ensures a trip to Fastenal...right after your trip across the shop when the halves separate, sending the top one into your chest.

The tube was fine, BTW, since the guy holding the chuck was no longer there to keep adding air past its design limit.
