Cessna 172M Skyhawk, G-ECON
During the landing roll the hub on the left wheel came apart, allowing the outer section of the wheel hub, the tyre and inner tube to depart the aircraft. Four of the six bolts that clamp both parts of the hub together had wound out of their locating holes in the inner section of the hub. The first two to three threads in the remaining two holes in the inner section of the hub had been stripped.
