Rim/Wheel Safety & Service: Inspecting and Installing Wheel Guard Separator Plates Mobile App
The Wheel-Guard is a nylon separator plate, approximately .040" thick.
How does it work?
It is placed between the hub or drum and the wheel, and/or between two wheels in dual applications. The Wheel-Guard separator plate is strongly recommended in severe applications where corrosion, abrasive wheels and/or wear has been identified as a problem. Wheel guard separator plates should not be used between the brake drum and hub. The guard separator plate is for extreme temperature conditions and/or frequent stop-start braking applications. Both aluminum and steel wheels can benefit from the use of a separator plate. Care must be exercised in centering the separator plate prior to torqueing and stud length must be checked as each plate is approximately .040"" thick. Use the Rim/Wheel Safety & Service: Inspection and Installation of Wheel Guard Separator Plates form to ensure safe practice while installing guard separator plates on heavy-duty trucks and standard vehicles.
