Next Generation Xbrite+ Forged Aluminium Wheels Reach European Market


Motor Wheel Service Distribution (MWSD) has confirmed the launch of the next generation Xbrite+ forged aluminium wheels, all manufactured at Wheels India’s upgraded multi-million pound production facility.

In the advanced production process a polished Xlite forged aluminium wheel goes through several automated treatment stages to permeate the metal deeper, ensuring high levels of corrosion resistance and shine with no tarnishing or flaking.

MWSD has exclusive distribution rights for the supply of Xlite and Xbrite+ forged aluminium wheels throughout Europe. Matt Mardle, Chief Operating Officer at MWSD, said: “The latest generation of the Xbrite+ is a marked advancement on its predecessors, with the new production facility allowing far deeper penetration of the forged aluminium which in turn results in unrivalled aesthetics, performance and longevity.”

Xlite and Xbrite+ are spin forged from a single aluminium billet, a unique manufacturing process 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. All wheels are available in 17.5, 19.5 and 22.5 inch sizes.

The ultimate advantages of operating with forged aluminium wheels including extra payloads, reduced diesel usage, decreased CO² emissions and less wear on surrounding parts, including expensive components such as tyres and brakes.
