Stemco Motor Wheel, manufacturer of high-performance brake drums for commercial vehicles, says its CentriFuse Lightweight Brake Drum is now a premium published option for certain Freightliner and Western Star trucks models.

The company says its CentriFuse Lightweight Brake Drums are designed for weight-sensitive applications to increase payload or fuel efficiency. The 16.5” x 8.62” CentriFuse drum now available weighs 100 pounds, which is the lightest brake drum in the industry for that specification.

“Stemco Motor Wheel is looking forward to our future with Freightliner Trucks and Western Star Trucks,” says Morie Myers, Stemco Vice President of OE and Asia Pacific. “Stemco Motor Wheel products have been recognized as industry leaders in fuel efficiency and reliability. This is a very exciting partnership. ”
