    Perhaps in his state Hazmat test book could be crap answer.
    In Utah book same question have 4 or 3 answers, one is to remove hot tire. Last test I did it was wrong answer, the right one is to call police and get yourself and others away.

    I worked on the new 1972 Macks coming into Chemical Leaman's fleet [still bias ply tires] and we were instructed to remove the lug wrench and pry bar, the lug wrench had a forged hole to insert the bar for leverage.

    Everyone glommed those bars, nice mild steel about 15" long, 1001 uses in a mechanic's tool box.

    Other than the determined owner driver with a tap in the air system and impact wrench, I doubt any driver even attempted to change a tire since the late 60's.
