How does The Deflecktor save fuel?
By increasing aerodynamic efficiency. The deep-well cavity of rotating wheels permits needless air turbulence. The DEFLECKTOR Aero Wheel Cover's patented design reduces this turbulence. In SAE type II J 1321 tests conducted by independent third parties, each wheel cover was found to save approximately 1/4 of 1%. A tractor-trailer combination with eight wheel covers achieved a 2.06% increase in overall fuel savings.
Is there any maintenance required?
No. Normal cleaning only.
What is required to install the covers?
A small amount of water. No hand tools. No assembly.
What about wheel inspections?
No problem. The Deflecktor is specifically designed for easy wheel inspection.
What type of payment is accepted?
We accept all major credit cards.
How long can I expect The Deflecktor to last?
That's a good question. We have wheel covers in the field in excess of 1,000,000 miles and still going strong.
Does The Deflecktor carry a warranty?
Yes. One year from purchase on all materials and workmanship. No questions asked.
What is the expected payback on my investment?
Everyone in this industry has his or her own math; we suggest you take the time to do yours. In terms of dollars, payback is within four months for most over-the-road applications.
How does The Deflecktor hold up in tough weather conditions?
