CULLMAN, Ala. — Webb Wheel Products is recalling all Platinum Series Brake Drums with cast date codes 017-01 to 273-02.

The affected Platinum Series drums have be subject to: premature cracking of the braking surface resulting in reduced or complete loss of braking on the wheel end, or loss of brake drum pieces; excessive run-out of the braking surface causing cam rollover resulting in the loss of breaking on the wheel end.

Webb Wheel stresses no injuries have yet been reported as a result of the flaws. The company will pay for the inspection and replacement of affected Platinum Series Brake Drums. For more information, contact Christy Rusk at 800-633-3256 for inspection instructions and replacement information, or visit www.webbwheel.com

Platinum Series Brake Drums manufactured outside the specified cast date codes are not affected by the voluntary recall notice.
