The CentriFuse lightweight brake drum from Stemco Motor Wheel is now a premium published option for certain Freightliner and Western Star truck models.

CentriFuse brake drums are designed for weight-sensitive applications to increase payload or fuel efficiency. The 16.5 in. x 8.62 in. CentriFuse drum now available weighs 100 lbs., which is the lightest brake drum in the industry for that specification, Stemco said.

“Stemco Motor Wheel is looking forward to our future with Freightliner Trucks and Western Star Trucks,” said Morie Myers, vice president of OE and Asia Pacific.
