SOMERSET, Ky. – Hayes Lemmerz International, an auto-wheel maker that sought bankruptcy protection in December, says it will close here. The facility is still making aluminum wheels, but that’s expected to change by the end of March. The closure will result in pretax expenses of $10.7 million, including $6.3 million in its fourth quarter ended in January.
