Safety is always a good idea, a lot of damage to your body is permanent or at least does not heal back to 100%.

(I assumed a pressurized volume 0,0358m, energy content if it bursts @ 8 bar is roughly equal to 10g of TNT)

Further reading for those people who are interested in weird numbers and fomulars:
ASME PCC2 section 501 III.

So just be careful...
Sure - bursting tires, especially from trucks, construction and agricultural equipment is indeed very dangerous. Inner tubes are relatively safe, since when overinflated they will not go anywhere near 8bar. Still, basic safety precautions like earplugs and safety glasses should be used. To reach such a high pressure tubes need tires to hold them together, otherwise they'll inflate like balloon at much smaller pressure.
