MWheels Unveils New Xlite and Xbrite Wheels
Suitable for 385/65R22.5 tyres, it is widely used on numerous truck and trailer applications across all industry sectors.
The wheels have been redesigned to reduce stress on the disc and flange profiles, with field tests showing a reduction of 60% against previous versions.
Two ten stud variations are available to order immediately, with the 26mm stud hole wheel arriving in July and the 32mm from September. Both wheels have a load capacity of 5,000kg, have been tested to KBA Standard by TUV and are fully certified.
Xlite and Xbrite wheels, which are five times stronger and 40 percent lighter than the standard steel equivalent, 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, while 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.
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.
