LKQ Corp. has reached an agreement with GUNIWHEEL LLC for the exclusive distribution of the GUNIWHEEL system for North America and Europe.

According to a press release, GUNIWHEEL, based in Alpharetta, Ga., manufactures a new product for collision repair shops, mechanical repair shops, towing companies and automotive enthusiasts. The GUNIWHEEL45 features a universal four- and five-lug bolt pattern transport wheel, with accompanying accessories, that can be used as an alternative method to other cumbersome temporary jack stands or lifts.

When a vehicle has damaged or missing wheels, the use of GUNIWHEELS provides a temporary wheel for the vehicle to function, while enabling it to move safely and freely through the repair process.

“Our team discovered this product at the 2018 SEMA show and we knew this was a perfect fit for the LKQ distribution network, for both our North American and European businesses,” said Terry Fortner, LKQ vice president of sales and marketing.
