Maxion unveils lighter steel wheel

Posted: November 4, 2019

Maxion Wheels has unveiled what it’s referring to as the “toughest and lightest” standard 22.5×8.25 commercial vehicle steel wheel that will be available beginning next year.

Weighing in at 64 lb., it is lighter than its predecessor but still stronger thanks to an optimized design, engineering, and flow-forming technologies, the company says.

The lineup offers a load rating of 7,400 lb., and features a new circular hand hole rather than the traditional D-shaped openings found on other Maxion wheels. The change in the hand hole and other design optimization analyses reportedly reduced structural stresses by more than 10%.
