Aluminium truck wheels which are 40% lighter and 5x stronger than steel
Heuver has become a European distributor for Xlite® aluminium truck wheels. These truck wheels are made of wrought aluminium and have been produced in accordance with TÜV and ISO9001 norms.While the design is stronger, it is also 40% lighter than the standard steel equivalent. Xlite thus helps to realise genuine cost savings and improves the performance of commercial vehicles.
Less wear and tear, which means a longer life span
“One of the main advantages is that aluminium truck wheels are 5x stronger than the steel equivalent”, says director Bertus Heuver. “Xlite wheels are produced on a spinning machine using one piece of strong aluminium. The latest CNC machines are used to produce the most precise products possible. The aluminium then undergoes a special heat treatment that helps to maximise the strength of the wheel. For our customers, this means less wear and tear and the longest possible life span for their wheels, tyres and axles. When it comes to the finish, our customers can choose from brushed, polished and Xbrite. In addition, all wheels are available with 26mm as well as 32mm lug holes.”
Xlite wheels are available in the following sizes:
- 75 x 17.5
- 50 x 19.5
- 50 x 22.5
- 25 x 22.5
- 00 x 22.5
- 75 x 22.5
Higher loading capacity, lower fuel costs
“All aluminium truck wheels are 40% lighter than their steel equivalent. We are proud to be able to offer a complete range of aluminium truck wheels to our customers”, adds Bertus Heuver. “Xlite wheels have an average weight of 24 kg, which helps to increasing the loading capacity of vehicles, while reducing fuels costs and helping the environment. The protective ALT valves are available on all wheels as standard. Naturally, the wheels comply with European safety norms and TÜV norms, and are rigorously tested for compliance on this front. We are convinced about the quality of the Xlite series and emphasise this with a standard 5-year guarantee. Furthermore, all 11.75x 22.5 trailer wheels have a bearing capacity of 5,000 kg, which means they comply with all applicable European norms. This makes them yet another top product for our truck customers.”
