Issue

On certain fifth wheel trailers outfitted with disc brakes, the steel wheel spare tire provided with the vehicle are incompatible with the disk-brake hubs. The wheel is contoured in a fashion which does not allow the rim to mount flat and flush to the hub face. Should a user install the subject spare tire assembly, the wheel will rub against the disc brake caliper until it comes into contact with the brake line. If the spare tire with the steel wheel is installed and wears through the brake line, it could lead to a loss of braking or control, and affect vehicle handling, both which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace the spare rim with an aluminium compatible spare rim.
