An increase in the disc width by 2mm for additional strength and a revamped disc-to-rim transition profile to reduce stress means the wheel achieved 2.7m cycles compared to 1.3m against the outgoing model. The Association of European Wheel Manufacturers (EUWA) standard is 1m.

The company will initially target premium sector relevant OE trailer manufacturers in the UK and Germany.

Three eight stud variations are available, with 26mm, 30mm or 32mm stud hole variants weighing just 19.2kg and compatible with 285.70 R19.5 tyres. All wheels have a load capacity of 3,040kg and have been tested to TUV standards.

The 7.5 x 19.5 wheel is MWheels third forged aluminium launch in as many months. There has also been a new 11.75 x 22.5 for rigorous heavy-duty application vehicles including tipping, walking floor, logging and plant trailers and a 9.00 x 22.5 suitable for a wide remit of commercial vehicle uses.
