Xlite Coach Wheels Launched at Euro Bus Expo
Motor Wheel Service reports that it successfully launched xlite coach at Euro Bus Expo 2010, receiving over 100 enquiries for the new forged aluminium wheel range. Available in 9.00 x 22.5 inches and 11.75 x 22.5 inches, the product range has been specially adapted for the coach market and is available immediately.
John Ellis, managing director of Motor Wheel Service, said: “We don’t operate with a one size fits all policy to sales, hence our product specifications, key performance messages and pricing structures are tailored to individual markets. Coach is a very important area for forged aluminium wheels and extra payloads, reduced diesel usage and decreased CO² emissions are as important as the aesthetic of the product.”
xlite wheels, which are said to be five times stronger and 40 per cent lighter than the standard steel equivalent, are forged from a single aluminium billet using a CNC machines. They are available in 17.5,19.5 and 22.5 inch sizes.
