Im just reading David Woods great manual on the Lunar Roving Vehicle and I noticed a few images of the LRV wheel during construction, they don't have the large band and black stripe across the hub.

I always assumed that the hub was a two half item and this was part of its construction, however it is now obvious that it is a one part machined hub so I was way out.

Does anyone know why the marking are there, is it the same kind of reason as the roll marking on the launch vehicle?

(Probably more questions to follow as I find out more about this amazing vehicle. )

All times are CT (US)
