Potential Number of Units Affected: 12
California Trailer Works, Inc. (CTW) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 boat trailers equipped with Carlisle Transport Products brand wheels installed as original equipment. These wheels were manufactured with machine dimensions for the application of a center cap and the application of steel lug inserts that were not controlled to the required specifications. As a result, the wheel may not be tightened to the proper torque during the mounting process.
If the wheels are not tightened to the proper torque, the wheels could loosen, leading to wheel separation, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash. A detached wheel also becomes a road hazard.
CTW will notify owners, and dealers will repair or replace affected wheels free of charge. CTW has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact California Trailer Works, Inc. at 1-916-381-7619.
