Clean Truck Wheels and Add To Your Revenue

If you are looking for a way to take better care of your fleet of trucks, you should check out some of the best products that are available on the market. Products such as the VIS-Shine and VIS-Polish are made specifically to service and maintain the wheels and rims of large trucks that drive through harsh weather conditions and for long hours at a stretch. The brutal treatment that they undergo makes them susceptible to easy wear and tear. Maintaining the wheels by refurbishing them once in a while can help extend their lifespan and also increase their efficiency and performance.

Refurbishment is necessary

If you want the wheels of your trucks to last longer and tackle harsh terrains with better efficiency, you need to make sure that they are cleaned regularly. Cleaning aluminum rims can pay rich dividends in the form of better performance and better ride quality. The VIS-Polish is a machine that can clean wheels in less than an hour. It does not require much human supervision since it is a fully automated system, designed to produce a superior shine. It also reveals tiny, hidden cracks that are normally invisible to the naked eye. This helps to identify wheels that need to be changed.

Additional revenue stream

Having machines such as the VIS-Shine and VIS-Polish can not only help you save money by eradicating the need to go to service stations all the time, but also help you start your own additional stream of revenue by offering polishing services to other fleet owners. You can start your very own polishing and refurbishment station and start generating profits. Offering services such as cleaning aluminum rims will help you add to your revenue and help you grow your business even more. Invest today and take a step towards a brighter future!

Vehicle Inspection Systems Announces Newest Commercial Tire Partnership with Atlanta Commercial Tire


VIS delivered 2 VIS-Polish automated wheel polishing systems to a new customer in Atlanta, Georgia.

VIS, the front runner for heavy duty vehicle, truck and bus safety in the trucking and transportation industry for more than 20 years, has formed a partnership with Atlanta Commercial Tire, an Atlanta, Georgia-based commercial tire dealer. The dealer took delivery of two VIS-Polish automated wheel polishing machines on Thursday, December 14, 2017.

The machines arrived December 14 and were hooked up the same day. The VIS Service team arrived Monday, December 18, 2017, to start training.

“We invested in the VIS-Polish in an effort to provide a quality, consistent product to our customers in a timely manner,” Larry Faulkner, VP of Sales & Marketing for Atlanta Commercial Tire, said. “The VIS-Polish process helps convey a high quality expectation when customers are evaluating their options for wheel polishing. The impressive, professional appearance of the polishing operation coupled with the tremendous finished product puts us in the best position possible to grow our current business and target new business.”

Atlanta Commercial Tire, a full sized service tire company, started in downtown Atlanta more than 45 years ago.

“We provide commercial truck tires with over 50 service trucks in the state of Georgia to get our customers up and running as quickly as possible,” Mr. Faulkner said. “We also have off-the-road tires and service via 4 off the road boom trucks. Atlanta Commercial Tire also sells forklift tires, foam-filled tires and rubber tracks. We have a mobile forklift tire press that allows us to press on forklift tires at our customers’ facilities. Atlanta Commercial Tire has nine locations throughout the state of Georgia and 3 Bandag Retread manufacturing plants. Our additional services include but are not limited to: aluminum wheel polishing, steel wheel refinishing, mounted tire programs, fleet inventory management, fleet inspections and a host of other services related to the tire business.”

Atlanta Commercial Tire strives to be the premier commercial tire service provider in the state of Georgia by offering premium products in the proper applications while keeping in mind the best interest of each individual customer. Their ultimate goal is not to be the lowest price dealer, but instead the lowest cost dealer for any size fleet.

With Atlanta Commercial Tire’s vast array of wheel-end services, VIS knew that the VIS-Polish would be an excellent fit for their business.

“Our VIS-Polish units will be a great addition to the Atlanta Commercial Tire Business,” Mark Keegans, VIS Vice President, said. “We are very excited to start working with this tire dealer. More tire dealers are starting to invest in their business with the VIS-Polish, and we are proud to be working with them.”

How The VIS-Polish Can Help You Prevent Accidents

The wheels of a truck are probably the most important parts of the entire structure. Yet somehow, they are one of the worst treated parts. There is this general feeling that wheels need not be cleaned and maintained. Most fleet owners think that they can simply get them replaced after a few years and everything will be as good as new. This is however, far from the actual truth. The condition of the wheels of your truck is an indication of how much wear and tear your fleet has been through. Paying close attention to these small details can help you save a lot of money.

Revealing Cracks

Trucks drive through terrible conditions many a time, especially during long hauls. The wheels go through immense wear and tear, and need to be re-conditioned in order to keep operating smoothly. Cleaning aluminum rims regularly helps to prevent accidents from happening. The VIS-Polish system is a machine that polishes wheels and makes them shine like new. During this process, all the dirt, grime, rust, etc. are sanded away and the wheels are refurbished. This helps to reveal any hidden cracks or damages that are usually not visible to the naked eye. Cracks can be very dangerous if they aren’t spotted and dealt with in time.

Safety is Important

Since an operative is required to hoist the wheels onto the VIS-Polish system, the machine is fitted with a safety mechanism that ensures that the operative is safe from harm. The system is completely enclosed and the wheels get refurbished inside. Cleaning aluminum rims is now extremely simple and can be done in a matter of minutes. The quality of the VIS-Polish is seen in the long lasting and deep shine on the rims. The system is also highly efficient and is capable of operating without breaks.
