Accuride Corp. has launched two new marketing tools to help customers understand the performance, specifications, value and return on investment (ROI) of its wheel and brake drum products. The new Lightweight ROI Calculator – available on Accuride’s website and mobile application – helps fleet operators determine their potential cost savings from making a switch to Accuride products from competing or legacy products. Accuride also published the 2016 edition of its Accuride Wheels Product Catalog. The updated catalog includes two new lightweight aluminum wheels, featuring the company’s proprietary EverSteel coating technology. EverSteel is the industry’s first-ever application for steel wheels to carry a warranty against corrosion, according to the company.
Accuride says weight savings possible from lightweight Accuride wheels and Gunite brake drums can help fleets save fuel, lower maintenance costs, extend tire life and increase payload capacity. With the new calculator, users can quickly estimate the potential cost benefits to their fleet by switching to high-quality, lightweight Accuride wheels and Gunite brake drums. The calculations are based on the real-world requirements of the customer’s fleet, including fleet type, region of operation, number of truck and trailer units, number of axles, component type and more. It estimates fuel savings and additional payload potential using Accuride wheels, Gunite brake drums and both products combined. In addition to Accuride’s mobile app, the Lightweight ROI Calculator is available here.
To quickly download Accuride’s free mobile app with the Lightweight ROI Calculator, visit either the Apple App Store or Google Play from a mobile phone or tablet, search “Accuride,” then download the app.
