That is a disturbingly high percentage.  If you consider that a brake job 
(or new set of tires or whatever) on the typical tractor involves 10 "truck 
wheel end disturbances ", that means that 1 in 50 will loose a wheel.  With 
10 million large trucks in this country, if half (or even a quarter) of them 
get their wheels disturbed in a year, you are talking about a lot of flying 
wheels every day.

Only 0.2% of truck wheel end disturbances (any reason a wheel is removed and 
replaced) at the time resulted in a wheel-off. 98% of those wheel-offs 
occurred within 600 miles.
