I did a little research, but couldn't find anything to back my opinion, but I think it goes waaaay back to a time before pneumatic tires, when tires were solid rubber and the tires would sometimes work loose from the wheel.
Before starting a trip, it was a good idea to kick the tires , to see if any of them are coming loose from the wheel.

Any Old timers out there that can back this or shoot me down?

Truck drives sometimes check the tire by taping them with a bar or bat as a quick test, as it is hard to tell if vehicle with dual wheel as low tire pressure or even a flat tire.
