This SAE Recommended Practice applies to fasteners/fixing nuts as specified in SAE J694 and SAE J1835 used for disc wheels and demountable rim attachment respectively. Only the test methods necessary to assure proper wheel or rim assembly are specified. Fasteners for less common and special applications are not included.
The document was recently published. Additional clarification on oiling nuts prior to testing and sample size and cooling period need to be reviewed. A group of nut manufacturers as well as the truck bus wheel committee members agreed to reopen the document for this review.
