While the meeting is hosted by WTC, companies do not need to be part of the council to attend.

WTC directs its efforts toward providing its members with a forum in which to address industry-related issues, offer networking and educational opportunities and create a database of technical information designed to aid member companies in creating new wheel designs and preparing application guides. WTC also works with SEMA's legislative and technical staff to address matters that may affect the custom wheel industry.
