ALEXRIMS and IMS Group Promoting A-Shine Wheel from their Forged Aluminum Truck and Trailer Wheels at IAA Transportation in Hanover

Stefaan Goossens, Division Trailer Systems for IMS Group

At the 2022 IAA for Transportation, in addition to the leading tyre manufacturers, truck and trailer wheel manufacturers from across the market were in attendance. We have already covered Maxion Wheel’s presence, but another player, IMS Group, were at the trade fair promoting ALEXRIMS wheels as the official distributor for Europe.

A-Shine Finished Wheels Top of the Agenda

ALEXRIMS are a brand of forged aluminum wheels and are made from a special alloy which is lightweight, low-maintenance and cost-effective, according to their online and offline literature. ALEXRIMS is owned by Alex Global Technology with all the rims being manufactured in Taiwan. Europe-side the IMS Group is the distributor of ALEXRIMS within the continent with their team based out of the Netherlands and Germany and ensuring delivery of ALEXRIMS wheels within 48 hours.

During the show, the IMS Group were keen to promote the A-Shine line of finished wheels from the 17.5 x6.75 size all the way up to 22.5 x 13.00. The A-Shine finishing process means that the wheels are 100% protected against water, dirt and other pollutants as confirmed by independent research. This finishing process means that maintenance is less necessary as even prolonged exposure to salt spray will not corrode the product.
