Freightliner Trucks now offers ConMet PreSet aluminum wheel hubs standard on several heavy-duty vehicles and optional on other medium- and heavy-duty trucks in the product line. The wheel hubs are designed to offer improved seal and bearing life, simplified installation and reduced maintenance requirements, said the OEM.
The ConMet PreSet aluminum hubs are being offered standard on the Freightliner Century Class S/T, Columbia, Coronado, Classic XL, Classic and Argosy truck models. The hubs are optional for the Business Class M2 106 and 112 and the FLD120SD models.
PreSet aluminum hubs utilize pre-adjusted bearings for improved vehicle performance and extended life cycles. The hubs never need adjustments due to precision-ground spacers which provide a fixed dimensional bearing adjustment, noted Freightliner.
