Xlite, Xbrite wheel features
Xlite and Xbrite wheels are five times stronger and 40 per cent lighter than the standard steel equivalent. Spin forged from a single aluminium billet using a CNC machine, they undergo a unique manufacturing process. This produces a higher degree of production accuracy and a truer running wheel.
Xlite is available in machined and polished finishes. 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.
