FlowBelow wheel covers to be standard on Cascadia
FlowBelow locking aerodynamic wheel covers will be standard on Freightliner Cascadia trucks beginning in January 2021.
The news comes as the supplier and Daimler Trucks North America sign an amended long-term agreement regarding the production.
The OEM began to offer the quick-release aerodynamic wheel covers in 2016, while an updated version with the locking feature came this year.
“Driver acceptance of wheel covers has been excellent because of the patented quick release design, which allows instantaneous removal when necessary for inspection,” says Gordon Virginski, FlowBelow’s executive vice-president of OEM and dealer programs. “Fleets have seen improved fuel efficiency with the wheel covers and they have proven to be extremely durable over the useful life of their equipment.”

Sorry, but I like My Alcoa Shinny Wheel. Those Flow Below Wheel Covers take away from a
Beautiful Looking Tractor. They’re not for Me.
For all the Fuel Savings they supposedly project they will not be on My next Tractor. I like a Nice Clean Shiny Truck going down the road. I’m willing to incur a few dollars to achieve the added appearance on My Billboard. I’ve Trucked for nearly forty years and have always Prided Myself behind the Wheel of a Sharpe Looking Unit, sorry but no thanks.
