Wheel-Check’s loose nut, hot wheel identification device

Updated Jul 24, 2017

Michelin TireWheel-Check is designed to identify a loose wheel nut and is heat-sensitive to help prevent brake and bearing problems. When the wheel nuts are torqued properly, a Wheel-Check can be placed on each wheel nut in a uniform pattern; once a wheel nut has loosened, the attached Wheel-Check will appear out of sequence for easy identification. If a brake binds or a bearing seizes, the heat is transferred through the stud and nut; once the temperature exceeds 248 degrees Fahrenheit, the Wheel-Check will start to blister around the circumference and eventually begin to distort. Seventeen sizes are available in custom sizes and colors.
