Wheel loss in commercial vehicles is very rare but can have catastrophic consequences.
Investigation has shown that the majority of cases are caused by one of the following errors:
This causes excess stress in the studs, nuts and other components - often causing complete and sudden failure.
Runs the risk of nuts working loose and subsequent wheel loss.
Dirt, dust, rust or paint can be trapped between components when tightened. If this matter compresses or collapses the fixing can work loose.
Damaged wheel nuts, studs, and other components can result in a wheel not being clamped properly even when a correct torque setting is achieved, leading to potential wheel loss.
