The Steel Wheels Task Force comprises of automotive and wheel manufacturers, wheel trim suppliers, tooling manufacturers and North American steel producers.
A major activity of the Wheels Task Force, in addition to research, is to deliver key information about the features and benefits of using high-strength steels for wheels to automotive OEMs. This is accomplished largely through personal contact and small group presentations and various communications opportunities.
