EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Accuride Corp. has introduced its ProFinish steel wheel refinishing service for the North American commercial tire aftermarket.
The company said ProFinish will refinish all steel wheel makes with Accuride's Steel Armor coating. The product offers corrosion protection and carries a 12-month warranty against rust damage.
Accuride said it is responding to demand from large fleets that are spending a portion of their maintenance budget across multiple tire dealers and refinishing suppliers who want a more standardized refinished wheel product.
"Accuride launched ProFinish in response to the concerns fleet and aftermarket customers had with the coating quality and durability of their refinished wheels," said Scott Hazlett, Accuride Wheels president. "ProFinish gives them the advanced corrosion protection of Steel Armor coating on their refinished steel wheels. Our ProFinish refinished wheels will stand up to the toughest road environments in North America and deliver a level of quality and performance other wheel refinishers simply can't match."
