MWheels launches next gen heavy duty wheels
MWheels has launched its next generation Xlite and Xbrite forged aluminium wheels for rigorous heavy duty application vehicles, including tipping, walking floor, logging and plant trailers. The 11.75 x 22.5 wheel has been redesigned to reduce stress on the disc and flange profiles, with field testing showing a reduction of between 55-66 per cent against previous versions.
Two ten stud variations are available, with both the 26mm and 32mm stud hole variants weighing just 27.5kg and compatible with 385.65R22.5 tyres. Both wheels have a load capacity of 5,000kg and have been tested by TUV Sud to KBA standard.
The exclusive distributor of Wheels India wheels states that the wheels are five times stronger and 40 per cent lighter than the standard steel equivalent. They are spin forged from a single aluminium billet using a CNC machine to produce a higher degree of production accuracy and a truer running wheel.
Xlite is available in machined and polished finishes, while Xbrite goes through several automated treatment stages which permeate the metal deeper to deliver a wheel with the highest levels of corrosion resistance and shine. Wheels are available in 17.5, 19.5 and 22.5 inch sizes.
