Howmet Aerospace (HWS) recalled 22 Alcoa High Polish Aluminum Wheels, part number ULT 397, wheel size 22.5 x 8.25 due to potential safety risk.

Under certain circumstances, the wheels may not be able to support the load, which can cause the wheels to bend or break while in use.

Bent or broken wheels can increase the risk of injury or even death during a crash.

HWS will notify owners while distributors will replace the wheels, free of charge.

The recall began January 11, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
