Report Received Date: August 7, 1979
Summary: The wheel assembly may contain substandard welds in the area where the disc is attached to the rim. As a result, cracks can form in the wheel assembly, causing air loss and an underinflated tire.
Consequence: low tire inflation pressures could cause loss of vehicle control and an accident. Also, if the spot welds fail, the rim and tire could separate from the wheel disc, with consequent loss of control and accident.
Remedy: Dealer will inspect and replace any defective wheels without charge to owner.

Note:
Vehicle description: light trucks equipped with 15 x 5.5k wheel assemblies.
