  1. The antecedent for "them" needs to be in the sentence or in the previous sentence. These sentences don't read right without the antecedent.

  3. The truck got stuck under a bridge. The bridge was not high, so when it was passing under the bridge, it got stuck. It wouldn't move. The best way was to let the air out of the tires to lower the truck. "Them" refers to the tires.
