Audi has recalled the 2019 A8 large sedan, over concerns one of the wheel options isn't strong enough.

Cars fitted with the "Audi Sport 5 double-spoke V design, matte titanium look, machine-polished" wheels have been recalled, because the rims don't meet "strength specifications".

"If an affected vehicle hits the kerb or crosses speed humps or uneven road conditions at high speed, the wheel spokes could potentially break," Audi says.

A total of 13 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Audi will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a replacement with a set of alternative aluminium 21-inch alloy wheels.
