Improve Fuel Efficiency by 1.75%

Wheel Covers

Wheel covers go over the rim of the wheel, reducing drag and improving fuel efficiency.

How they work

The rotating wheel is one of the biggest individual contributors to overall vehicle drag. Wheel covers are installed over the rim of the wheels to streamline airflow. They are also typically very easy to remove if access to the rim is required.

International Adoption

The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) reports that wheel cover adoption has grown to 45% in the North American market. This is despite being held back by low product awareness and access.

Use outside of freight

If you want to see the bleeding edge of automotive aerodynamics all you need to do is turn on a Forumla 1 race.  Whilst we don’t think freight trucks will look like race cars anytime soon, some of the same principles apply everywhere. One of those principles is wheel covers, which are standard on F1 vehicles.

How much will I save with wheel covers?

  • Wheel covers save on average of 1.74% in fuel costs (approximately 0.93% for tractors and 0.81% for trailers). That means that they typically pay for themselves in less than 9 months and then continue to save you money for years to come. For an Aussie trucker doing 100,000 km per year, that means a saving of over $6000 in 5 years.

Is the effectiveness independently verified?

The savings from wheel covers have been confirmed by numerous independent, third-party tests including real-world, on the road tests, SAE Type II fuel efficiency test procedures, wind tunnel testing, CFD modeling and are on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program list of verified aerodynamic products. 

Will they fit my wheels?

Wheel covers work with the vast majority of wheel and tire combos, even super singles. Want to double check? No problem, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help!

Will they work with tire chains?

Yep, wheel covers work perfectly with chains as they don’t get in the way of the tires or the fairings.

What if I need access to the wheel?

Wheel covers are typically very easy to remove and re-install if access to the wheel is required.
