HMEE Type 1 Wheel and Tire AssemblyPosted: 2014/02/06
The wheel and tire assembly, NSN 2530-01-598-4010 (tan rim) and NSN 2530-01-618-8466 (green rim), for the HMEE Type 1 is in high demand, but has a long lead-time.
Even though the assembly is repairable, the number of returns has been lower than expected. A repair program is being started to help reduce the lead time and better stock the assembly.
So if you have any unserviceable assemblies, get them turned in through the supply system as soon as you’ve received a replacement.
The tire and wheel assemblies are on the Automatic Return Item List (ARIL) and should be shipped to Red River Army Depot (RIC BR4). Assignment of an unserviceable credit value for turn-in is still pending.
