Frank,tell me if sounds crazy.
Long ago I was told that essentially every rig would have to have at least one 'HUB-O-METER' on the trailer.Highway Patrol officers would be able to compare the mileage off the meter to logbook entries,to make sure drivers weren't cooking the books.
If so,would the officers want ready access to the axles in order to 'read' the numbers?
Could this explain perhaps why,so far,the wheels have been 'open'?
