Wheel loss

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:

Over tightening of fixings

This causes excess stress in the studs, nuts and other components - often causing complete and sudden failure.

Under tightening of fixings

Runs the risk of nuts working loose and subsequent wheel loss.

Foreign matter

Dirt, dust, rust or paint can be trapped between components when tightened. If this matter compresses or collapses the fixing can work loose.

Reused, worn or damaged components

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.
