Potential Number of Units Affected: 146
McClain Trailers (McClain) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 AT and ATT boat trailers equipped with Carlisle Tire and Wheel brand aluminum 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.
McClain will notify owners, and Carlisle Tire and Wheel dealers will repair or replace the affected wheels free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2012. Owners may contact McClain Trailers at 1-713-675-2761.
