less than a 1/2 Mile from where I'm sitting right now
We were loosing so many wheels on garbage trucks the city started putting indicators on the lugs so the drivers could see if they were loosening up. Automatic suspension if a car you worked on looses a wheel now, and rightfully so.
In another city near me, they had idiots going around the neighborhood loosening wheel nuts on cars.
That dually tire was like a heatseeker missile. Looked like there was all kind of room in that field/yard but it just had to hit the guy's car. That really sucks.
Maybe the spindle nuts came loose and the hub came off. Trying to figure out how the duals were still attached to each other.
I have seen Both wheels come off with the axle still attached. This has the drum or disc still bolted by the lug nuts to be together like that. The axle probably snapped off at the flange. Maybe a Bearing seized to the point shearing it off.
Those are full floating axles, if the axle snapped it wouldn’t make a difference as the axles are just rotational and not supportive.
Those look like duals off of a Class 8 diesel truck. Not the same. Axle shafts don’t hold the wheels on.
Is the axle Basically a tube with spindles attached. Then the Hub or Drum runs on Bearings held by a Nut with a cage? Like a simple Boat trailer type set up, only Heavy duty. I was thinking it was a drive wheel from the Tractor. I watched my buddies F-350 Axle walk out on him after mud bogging. That was on the way home at night. He stopped before it came all the way out. We jacked it up and pushed it back in. Then drove home real slow. It tried to come out a few times. The rear end was chewed pretty bad.
