Utilizing thyssenkrupp’s climate-friendly bluemint® steel, Accuride’s new wheels reduce the C02 footprint of vehicles. The use of bluemint® steel significantly reduces the CO2 footprint in the production of the product. Reducing the weight of the wheel from 34.5kg to 32kg reduces the CO2 footprint over the life of the vehicle.



 

Certified 70% reduction in C02 during steel production and a 66% CO2 reduction during wheel production

Accuride optimized light weight steel designs have even a better C02 footprint than comparable lighter aluminum wheels (based on 1.2 Million vehicle km)
