Aluminium light metal wheel for use on motor cars “SMC”
Product description
Five-spoke Softline rim. The wheel is marked on the front with the national type designation KBA 45580 and on the back with the type WB 75016 and the date of manufacture, as follows: the rear of the rim bears a number, e.g. 04, 05 or 06, beside which is a grid, the cells of the grid contain dots which indicate the month of manufacture, e.g. 04 plus 11 dots = November 2004.
Testing of the wheels established that their strength is inadequate under certain circumstances. This can lead to a spoke fracture and ultimately destruction of the wheel. If this occurs, the driver may lose control of the vehicle.
