RealWheels Corporation (RWC) has announced its new line of Twist & Lock Aero Covers, designed to streamline the installation and removal of the wheel cover.
To meet the needs of fleet maintenance staff as well as drivers, the patent-pending Twist & Lock mounting system features a large-diameter, spring-loaded top plate that provides quick and secure cover mounting. The engineering team at RealWheels has developed this bracket design to work on all trucks and trailers that have dual or wide-base wheels.
RealWheels continues to improve its stainless steel covers, now redesigned for the Twist & Lock Bracket. This next-generation cover also is available in a clear polycarbonate and black ABS. Return on investment is estimated at less than six months.
The addition of these materials gives drivers and fleets additional choices for appearance, function, and pricing.
The Aero Stainless with Window combines a lightweight stainless cover with a high-impact, clear polycarbonate viewing window.
“With our clear polycarbonate cover or Aero Stainless with Window, drivers now have the ability to visually inspect the wheel components without removing the wheel cover,” said RWC founder Jan Polka. “It really saves time and money.”
RealWheels’ smooth designs are engineered to reduce drag by closing off the deep well cavity of the wheel. Smartway J1321 testing showed a fuel cost savings of 1% to 2%, and real-world testing by fleets that are using RWC’s Aero Covers reported even greater fuel savings.
