Non-lead wheel weights are Wurth it

July 2, 2012

In an effort to support the National Lead Free Wheel Weight Initiative started by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Wurth USA Inc. has eliminated lead wheel weights from its automotive and truck product lines. A complete line of lead-free alternatives is available from the company.

“At Wurth, we’re committed to offering solutions that promote a healthier environment for everyone,” says CEO and President Michael Krause. “We’ll continue to provide superior products that encourage positive environmental changes.”

Wurth says its full offering of steel and zinc wheel weights provides the same fit, form and function as their lead counterparts.

Wurth USA is a provider of automotive shop supplies, fasteners and tools. For more information, visit
