Wireless Wheel Torque System

The Problem - Wheel Offs

A major problem in the Automotive industry is “Wheel-Offs”, the internet is full of customer complaints of wheels falling off a vehicle after some type of wheel service. Many of these issues can be avoided with the right processes and verification that ALL lug nuts have been torqued correctly.

The consequences of incorrectly torqued lug-nuts include:

· Repair - NOTE: Improper lug torque can result in stripped lug nuts, broken wheel studs, a wheel loosening, or can cause the wheel, brake rotor or brake drum to distort.

· Replacement and liability insurance costs

· Negative publicity and damaged image of service providers

· Negative customer experience lowering customer retention

· Potential for physical injury for your customer and others
