Why Lead Free Wheel Weights?

Lead Free Wheel Weights

Wurth USA is proudly celebrating its second lead-free* year!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched the National Lead Free Wheel Weight Initiative to educate people and get them to voluntarily move to lead alterative wheel weights. Wurth USA has been a proud partner since 2010.

Currently the EPA’s program is only voluntary, but those who are still using lead wheel weights are strongly urged to make the change to lead free wheel weights.

Wurth USA offers an expanded line of OEM-quality steel and zinc wheel weights as a greener alternative without sacrificing important characteristics such as retention and corrosion resistance. Switching to a lead-free alternative will allow each of us to reduce the impact of lead accumulation in our environment.

These weights have the same functionality, appearance, and fit characteristics as conventional wheel weights. These non-lead weights are designed and produced for cars with both steel and alloy wheels, and are coated with a protective coating to ensure corrosion resistance.

*As of December 1, 2012, Wurth USA eliminated lead auto and truck wheel weights from its line!
