I have just read from another source that AlKo are recalling all single axled chassis of 1600kg and over, built between October 2012 and May 2013 and fitted with alloy wheels. It appears that the factory-applied paint coating on the brake drums was too thick. The heat build-up when subjected to heavy braking over an extended period of time was sufficient to cause the paint to flow, resulting in the clamping force being reduced and consequently the bolts loosening. Only alloy wheels are affected as these require higher torques.
