Zip’s AW/Direct is now offering the Guniwheel Universal Vehicle Mounting System, the go-to tool to provide temporary mobilization of cars, SUV s, pickups and also trailers. With its patented universal lug nut pattern design, the GuniWheel provides fitment for thousands of makes and models of vehicles.

The universal wheel is perfect for auto body and collision shops which do not want to scratch or overspray onto their customer s high-dollar wheels but still need the flexibility to move the car in and out of the paint booth or park it in the yard, on demand. Auto repair shops also find the GuniWheel beneficial when waiting on parts for a job. Keep your shop profitable with an efficient workflow - free up a stall easily by simply driving the car out and parking it until the part comes in!

The GuniWheel is just not for shops, towing operators find the universally designed wheel valuable when loading and unloading vehicles with missing or damaged wheels or tires. No more gauging the asphalt and the car carrier decks with autos that have stolen wheels. Buy a four-pack and move any car you find sitting on blocks!
Made from polyurethane injection molding, the solid black tire won't go flat and offers a unique safety feature to prevent overspeeding. Evenly-spaced ribs are molded across the width of the tire and will begin to vibrate once speeds reach the speed limit rating of 5 mph. The carbon steel rim has a durable design and is painted orange for quick and easy identification. Each wheel weighs just 24 lbs.

The GuniWheel is available in two sizes from Zip s AW Direct. As the name implies, the GuniWheel 45 fits four and five bolt hub patterns found on most passenger cars. The GuniWheel 56 fits five and six bolt hub patterns found on most light pickups and SUVs.
To order, select the desired size from the drop-down menu at right. Common to both sizes, the lug holes are slotted for adjustability, and a set of lug nuts is included with each wheel. The GuniWheel is available for sale individually, as a pair or set of 4. See the drop-down menu to select the desired quantity. Receive free shipping when ordering more than one. Additional lugnuts, spacers, shims and bolts are also available for sale individually.
