Central States Plastic has released the newest tool in the ongoing fight to keep truck wheels properly torqued.

The lightweight Torque Fin (less than 6 pounds) allows one-man torque checking at recommended intervals of 5,000 miles.

“When tires do come off it is within the first 175 to 3000 miles” according to Jared Austin of Central States. “Wheels generally should be torque checked after the first 50 to 100 miles of having a wheel reset on the hub.”
