ThyssenKrupp carbon rims receive global approvals
ThyssenKrupp Carbon Components GmbH has become the first and only carbon rim manufacturer to receive global road approval. The Kesselsdorf, Germany company received European road approval the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) last year. In addition to a general operating permit (ABE) marked by a KBA number, the rims now also have an approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) according to DOT E and from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism or according to the so-called Japan Light Alloy Wheel Standard (JWL). All approvals are noted on the rims and should document the corresponding quality standards.
