Default Broken stuff from work.

Last week a truck came into the shop with a small problem. There were 2 tires mounted on 2 rims that werent even on the trailer!!! Well one tire/rim was in the back of the trailer, anyway...

I dont know what happened, either a really really bad blow out or the old mechanic messed up when he put them on there, but who cares. From what the driver said he lost one rim & tire, noone died or got hurt.

Now the pics....

This is a normal 24.5" rim. As you can see its a normal 10 bolt hub pilot rim.



Now this is the rim the driver brought back. This is also a 24.5" rim that SHOULD be a 10 bolt hub pilot but as you see....




SUPER UNI-BOLT!!!

No really, the whole center part broke & went with the missing rim. The real shiny sections is where the rim was rubbing against the brake drum. The rubbing was so bad the valve stem was rubbed almost in half.

The drum was also messed up, like cocked to the side. The studs, HAHA!!! The beating they took was bad on their part. They were darn near cut in two. Theyre about 3/4" or so thick.

Ok enough stupid stuff... Im out.

A year or two ago there was a number of Metro buses that all lost wheels because they weren't torquing them correctly. Anyway, this reminded me of that.
