The OEM business unit of Webb Wheel Products has announced that its medium-duty hub and drum assemblies will be standard wheel end equipment for Kenworth T300 Class 6 trucks equipped with air brakes and for limited T300 Class 7 applications.

Designed specifically for the medium-duty market, the T300 — available in Class 6 and Class 7 configurations as a straight truck or tractor — is designed to combine Kenworth’s class 8 heritage with maneuverability, visibility and versatility to meet a wide range of vocational and pickup and delivery applications. The 24,000- to 26,000-pound GVWR vehicle equipped with air brakes was introduced this year for pickup and delivery markets and various other applications where companies use non-CDL drivers.

“We’re very pleased that Webb products have been chosen by Kenworth,” says Kent Finkbiner, president of OEM business for Cullman, Ala.-based Webb Wheel. “They set high-quality standards for themselves and their component suppliers, and we’re pleased with the confidence they’ve placed with Webb.”
