A new North American standard in fuel and cost efficiency
Weighing in at 64 lbs., Maxion Wheels’ latest truck wheel for North America is the lightest standard five-hole 22.5x8.25 commercial vehicle steel wheel in the market. The new fuel-efficient wheel weighs less than its predecessor – yet is stronger as a result of optimized design, engineering and flow forming technologies.
With a 7,400 lb. payload wheel load rating, Tough and Light features a new hand hole design deviating from the traditional Maxion Wheels’ D-shape. The new shape is the result of design optimization analysis that reduced wheel structural stresses by more than 10% resulting in an even more efficient and durable wheel when compared to the previous generation.
“Improved fuel efficiency, fewer emissions and an increase in payload are just a few of the benefits that come from the lighter wheel. Multiply that by 18 and you have a very smart investment in your total cost of ownership.”
