performance and 25% longer life!

Data tells the story. Webb Vortex Unlimited with CRT vents runs 15% cooler so your brakes are more effective and last longer. This means fewer repair stops for more uptime and reduced maintenance cost over the life of your equipment. They easily pass FMVSS 121 standards for Retardation Ratio, Brake Power, and Brake Recovery at their respective GAWR.
