Speedline Truck Launch Two New Wheels at IAA

The first of these was the SLT 4015 for tractors and trailers, for sale since March. The new wheel measuring 19.5x8.25", with a wheel payload of 3,150kg, an 8x275mm mounting hole and ET 146, is available in bolt hole diameters of 26, 30 and 32mm. Just like all Speedline Truck wheels, this too is available with the high-polish diamond surface finish and is fitted with the original Speedline Truck valves.

Secondly the company presented the new SLT 3018 wheel, which will be available from early 2019 in 22.5x11.75" size with ET 120 and bolt hole diameters of 26 and 32mm. At 5,000kg, this has the highest payload capacity of any vehicle in its class and has been developed principally for very demanding applications. The wheel will be available with the diamond surface and glazed finishes. Also, the SLT 3018 has special corrosion protection on the valve.
