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.
