Tire service tools and equipment provider AME International LLC displayed a new hub and stud cleaner for European vehicles at the 2019 Specialty Market Association (SEMA) Show.

“We came out with a bigger version our Hub Buddy to complement the existing product,” says Don Tinker, who oversees North American business development for the company. “It cleans the back of the wheel and hub face for European vehicles with lug bolts.”

The Brooksville, Fla.-based company says its original Hub Buddy is a very popular product for removing debris before a wheel assembly is put together.

AME International is participating in the SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nov. 5-8.
