MWheels has launched the next generation 9.00 x 22.5 Xlite and Xbrite forged aluminium wheels.
Two ten stud variations are available, with the 26mm stud hole variant weighing 25.9kg and the 32mm just 25.7kg. They are designed for 295/60R22.5, 315/60R22.5, 315/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5 tyres.
Both wheels have a load capacity of 4,125kg, have been TÜV tested and gained KBA approval. Every Xlite and Xbrite wheel carries a five-year warranty.
Key design and manufacturing improvements include a strengthened transition area from the nave plate to the rim and a change in the valve angle to further fortify the wheel.
Xlite and Xbrite wheels, which are five times stronger and 40 percent lighter than the standard steel equivalent, are spin forged from a single aluminium billet, a unique manufacturing process using a CNC machine to produce a higher degree of production accuracy and a truer running wheel.
Xlite is available in machined and polished finishes, while Xbrite goes through several automated treatment stages which permeate the metal deeper to deliver a wheel with the highest levels of corrosion resistance and shine. Wheels are available in 17.5, 19.5 and 22.5 inch sizes.
The ultimate advantages of operating with forged aluminium wheels including extra payloads, reduced diesel usage, decreased CO² emissions and less wear on surrounding parts, including expensive components such as tyres and brakes.
