BRAKE WHEEL KITS
Our truck and trailer wheel kits are the preferred choice of fleet managers who value quality and consistency. The benefits of SilverbackHD Intentional Engineering™ become quickly obvious to fleet managers and maintenance technicians when they start using our SilverbackHD heavy-duty wheel kits. When you need better braking, safer stopping and a lower cost per mile, choose SilverbackHD.
Benefits of Truck & Trailer Wheel Kits
- OE-Grade Ceramic Balanced Formulation™ (CBF) Frictions
Available in 20K, 23K and 23KHTP for high-temperature performance, SilverbackHD frictions use proprietary ceramic-based formulations to effectively dissipate heat and lower wheel end temperatures, while increasing torque and decreasing stop distances. These denser, positive-molded frictions also reduce wear, which results in lower cost per mile for the fleet.
- OE-Grade SilverbackHD GeoMetric™ Series New-Lined Brake Shoes
SilverbackHD wheel kits are packaged with our trademark GeoMetric™ new-lined brake shoes. Designed and engineered with thicker steel in the tables, heat-treated anchor and cam ends, lab tested to meet or exceed OE shear load, the SilverbackHD GeoMetric™ is the perfect foundation brake to ensure brake geometry that maximizes braking and minimizes heat load. Every GeoMetric™ brake shoe is electro-deposition coated using our proprietary Geo-plus coating process for a lifetime warranty against rust-jacking.
- OE-Grade SilverbackHD GeoMetric™ Series Brake Hardware Kits
SilverbackHD engineered the GeoMetric™ Series brake hardware line to maintain brake geometry and to ensure that all brake functions properly continue throughout the life of the brake. Utilizing our proprietary Intentional Engineering™ process, this line of hardware products was developed to maximize return spring life by doubling the service cycle testing and increasing the tensile strength by 50%. Heat-treating the cam rollers to harmonize with S-cam head heat-treat standards is just another way we minimize fleet maintenance while extending brake life. Additional benefits of our kits include corrosion-resistant zinc dichromate plating and powder coating on all springs.
