Motor Wheel Service Distribution (MWSD) will give its two new xlite super single forged aluminium wheels their show debut on stand A28 at Truckfest Peterborough.
The company claims the wheels are among the lightest on market, and a change in profile by manufacturer Wheels India has enabled the load index to be increased to 5,000kg from 4,500kg.
The new 11.75 x 22.5 wheel, with a 0mm set and 10 x 26mm mounting holes, has had its weight reduced by 1.6kg to a leading 22.1kg. A 120mm inset wheel will also feature, with its weight lowered by 4.4kg to 24.3kg.
The products are available in three finishes – machined, polished and new generation Xbrite – the latter of which will also be on stand and features a technically advanced single part, transparent coating that offers the highest levels of corrosion resistance and unrivalled shine.
John Ellis, managing director of MWSD, said: "It is important that we have direct contact with the end user and have the right products on show, so with Truckfest Peterborough and the new super singles we go to the event with a very strong wheel offering indeed."
xlite wheels are forged from a single aluminium billet using a computerised numeric control machine to produce a higher degree of production accuracy. They are available in 17.5,19.5 and 22.5 inch sizes.
Benefits over steel wheels include unique safety features, reduced vibration and longer wear on surrounding parts, with the ultimate advantages of operating with forged aluminium wheels including extra payloads, reduced fuel usage and decreased CO² emissions.
Truckfest Peterborough takes place at East of England Showground on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 May.
