If that is the case, pun intended. I would consider a longer bolt with spacers. Torque them down and less likely to break. I found a number things I have done this with and fixed the problem. I guess it gives the bolt a bit more "spring" before it starts to break.
Not that I have a Hilllco. I have heard of case flagships with duels that the wheels start to crack and bolts breaking. I have broken a few bolts once on a lease combine that had the duels removed often for transport. Case makes spacers for the duals. They are blocks that go on the outside of the wheels, only spacers to use longer bolts, not make the wheels out further. I guess you can use them on regular wheels? Helps with wheels cracking and breaking bolts.
Was recently told this from a farm that put 1400 LSWs on an 8230. I guess Titan told them about it. So, I hope I relayed this info correctly. Titan had them torque to 1000ft/lbs. Sticker said 750 or something.
