Wiseco makes automotive pistons that feature lightweight forgings, gas ports, offset pins and optimized skin profiles. Pro Tru pistons are budget-friendly options for Chevrolet, Ford and Chrysler automobiles. The company offers powersports piston kits, which include pistons and assembly parts. The Pro-Lite piston features optimal cam shape and profile for peak performance and long life. Wiseco also manufactures custom forged pistons based on customers’ exact specifications.

Wiseco produces its own forge tooling and forges pistons in house. The production facility also includes a Dyno testing program that allows testing and development of new shapes, components and coatings. Wiseco’s ArmorGlide skirt coating, available on some piston models, provides toughness and lubrication to the piston. It also allows improved fitting of the piston within the bore, which helps reduce noise from the piston rock.

Wiseco makes pistons for specific applications to ensure maximum power, low wear and improved seals at running temperatures. The company designs each skirt shape for a specific running clearance to allow proper ring seal, minimum friction and smooth operation.
