Porsche has recalled 1,702 of its highest performing 911 models equipped with center locking wheels due to a design flaw that causes premature wear to the wheel hubs.

Left unattended, wear of the hubs could loosen the wheels and increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the affected center locking hub-and-wheel assemblies with those of an improved design at no charge.

If you own one of the 911s listed below and it was built between May 9, 2009 and September 17, 2010, contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243 and/or your local dealer for instruction.

Affected models by model year:

2010 – 2011 911 GT2 RS
2010 – 2011 911 GT3 RS
2010 – 2011 911 GT3
