Benefiting both fuel efficiency and payload
Wheels are one of the heavier components on a truck, making weight savings a priority for fleets. Reducing wheel mass, while preserving safety, quality and performance, can benefit both fuel efficiency and payload.
Lightweight, high-performance wheel expertise has made Maxion Wheels the leader in the supply of steel truck wheels. This new generation, beginning with the first wheel, a 22.5 x 11.75, will raise the standard even higher.
“We can continue to reduce weight, generation after generation, because we are passionate about engineering, avoiding unnecessary costs and supporting our customers with achieving their efficiency and sustainability targets.”
Unique Lightweighting Process
Maxion Wheels integrates all performance and design parameters into advanced structural and simulation tools where our wheel experts use this information, combined with their materials expertise and production know-how to identify solutions that combine meaningful savings with the highest possible performance.
Lightweight design is also an important element in Maxion Wheels’ ROADMAP ZERO strategy to remove CO2 emissions from its products and operations. With comprehensive lifecycle data, the positive impact of mass reductions on vehicle and production efficiency is clear. Lightweight design advances will play a role in a production-ready low-CO2 steel truck wheel available in the near future.
