- Equipment description: hi-spec wheels, part no. 356655, used in combination with dexter axle (6) bolt brake drums manufactured between february and october 2000. a design change with the brake drum rendered them incompatible with certain cast aluminum wheels produced by hi-spec wheel & tire company. brake drums used with these wheels do not provide sufficient mounting surface area for support of these wheels.
- Insufficient surface area will result in loosening of the wheel bolts which may cause the wheel(s) to become detached from the vehicle. loss of the wheel(s) could result in a vehicle crash.
- Dexter axle will notify consumers to return their vehicles to the nearest dealer for inspection and correction of the defect free of charge. owner notification began january 12, 2001. owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact dexter axle service department at 1-800-440-2164.
- Also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236).
