The defects have been grouped according to their location i.e. running tread and surface of the flange, wheel rim with tyre (solid wheel) or tyre and rim (tyre wheel), wheel disc, hub. For each type of defect, its designation, characteristics and apperance accompanied whenever possible by one or more characteristic photographs, have been indicated. In addition, information has been given concerning the means for detecting the defect, recommendations (of a general nature) concerning the procedure to be adopted following its detection, and its probable origin.
