Natural gas, all electric or autonomous trucks, the vehicles of the future are actually those of the present thanks to the many innovations of manufacturers and equipment manufacturers.
When I attend trade shows, I am often asked if it is necessary to fill out our VSI or Vehicle Suspension Information form. Although the form typically takes 10 minutes to fill out, most people miss the importance of what they consider an “extra” step. Some believe that the VIN number or a description of the suspension should be enough.

This statement could not be more further from the truth.
At Onspot, nothing is left to chance! Each piece that makes up the complete system has been the subject of a comprehensive study. The same is true for our chains.
Have you already noticed that we use different types of chains? Each of them has been designed to meet a specific need, and we will reveal our secrets about wheels and chains!
The process of creating a product depends on a human labor force working with machines to complete a finished product. To meet the needs and expectations of customers, several factors must be considered. We wish to share with you how Onspot produces its vehicle bracket kits.
In a tyre-surface system, the coefficient of friction is called ‘traction coefficient’. It’s as simple as that. But, what’s more important is to know why the traction coefficient is fundamental to road safety – and peace of mind.
As a mechanic, every day, you have to find new solutions to the problems you encounter. You are reflective, rigorous, and logical, and we know that it is not always that simple...
Everyone loves a parade! Especially, a Fire Truck Parade, Lights & Sirens!
