More than just a shiny wheel!

Wheel trims have become an extremely popular HGV accessory over the last 20 years, helping commercial vehicles look their best all year round. But did you know that they are designed to do more than just make your vehicle look great?

It should come as no surprise that the wheels of your vehicle are the point where undetected damage can cause the most serious issues and lead to life-threatening accidents. As the point of contact with the road and subject to extreme forces, your wheels endure the most punishing of conditions including rough terrain, heat, cold, and intense friction. These external conditions, combined with failure to spot the warning signs of corrosion and damage, are one of the main reasons for wheel related accidents, often leading to significant dangers to drivers and the public.

By helping to ‘shield’ key parts of the wheel from physical damage caused by unwanted contact such as stones and loose debris, wheel trims can protect areas the vital areas of your wheel that would otherwise be exposed to collision damage.

Wheel trims also help to form a physical barrier between the elements and the important parts of your wheel. Corrosion, also known as oxidation, occurs when iron, oxygen, and moisture interact through an electrochemical reaction, resulting in rust. Wheels are particularly susceptible to corrosion as they can be exposed to these elements on a near constant basis.

When corrosion is identified early it can be treated and doesn’t cause significant damage (other than to your bank balance), but when corrosion is not spotted early enough and impacts structurally significant parts of the wheel, such as the wheel nut, this can lead to highly dangerous and considerable accidents.
