Maxion Wheels is expanding its North American commercial vehicle (CV) product offering with the addition of a forged aluminum truck wheel product line.

“Maxion Wheels has been proudly serving the needs of the North American truck and trailer market for almost 100 years,” said Donald Polk, president of Maxion Wheels, Americas. “By adding forged aluminum to our product mix, our steel wheel commercial vehicle customers now have a one-stop alternative for their wheel needs. Our forged aluminum truck wheels are built for today’s toughest road conditions. They are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with Maxion Wheels’ highest product quality specifications.”

Maxion Wheels developed the forged aluminum CV four wheel product line in response to the market’s growing need for lighter vehicles as a means of reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.  The new 22.5x8.25 aluminum CV wheel weighs 45 lbs.

Compatible and interchangeable with current market offerings, Maxion Wheels’ aluminum wheel lineup was designed to exceed recognized industry standards with respect to: material, rim contour, radial and rotary fatigue, mounting configuration, and FMVSS 571.120 markings. The four wheels will be available in these sizes:

•22.5 x 8.25

•24.5 x 8.25

•17.5 x 6.75

•22.5 x 14.00

A bright machined finish is standard, and polishing is also available.

Fleets operating in North America will be able to purchase the new wheels through aftermarket channels with the initial rollout of the 22.5x8.25. A standard five-year limited warranty is included.
