The pilot reported hearing several unusual noises from the right side of the aircraft while backtracking in preparation for takeoff. It then veered sharply to the right and departed the sealed surface before the pilot was able to bring it to a halt. The right main wheel had collapsed. A subsequent investigation found that several bolts had came loose from the inner and outer flanges of the three piece wheel assembly. The right main tyre had recently been replaced and only the outer wheel flange was removed to facilitate the tyre change. The torque on the inner flange bolts was not re-checked after the new tyre was fitted.
