Alcoa Wheel Products Europe has introduced a new 22.5 x 11.75 wheel with 120 mm offset and 5000 kg load index for truck front steer axles and trailer axles. The new wheel weighs only 23.6 kg and is available with Ø 26mm mounting holes in four finishes:
• Brushed 819520
• Mirror Polished 819521
• Dura-Bright 819521DB
• Dura-Flange 819520DF
Rim flanges are engineered to a unified rim flange design, allowing to accommodate both adhesive and clip-on balancing weights.
The new FrontRunner is interchangeable with the current wheels and has passed European LBF Eurocycle tests, as well as SAE J267 wheels/rim truck tests. Volvo Trucks will switch completely from the FrontRunner with 4500 kg load index to the new wheel with 5000 kg load index. The wheel is also available at trailer OEMs for vehicles with 10 ton load axles.
