A new North American standard in fuel and cost efficiency
With a weight of only 64 lbs. and a 7,400 lbs. wheel loading rate, our new Tough and Light truck wheel for the North American market sets a new standard for commercial vehicle steel wheels.
The Tough and Light wheel features a new circular hand hole shape deviating from the traditional Maxion Wheels D-shape. Combined with an optimized design that reduces structural stresses by more than 10%, this results in an even more efficient and durable wheel compared to its predecessor – and in improved fuel efficiency and fewer emissions of commercial vehicles. The new Tough and Light wheel will be available in 2020.
"Our commitment to leading the commercial vehicle market with cost-competitive lightweight wheels is a key force behind our latest weight reduction breakthrough."
