World’s largest wheel manufacturer Maxion Wheels has announced the launch of Europe’s lightest mass-produced steel truck wheel at IAA Transportation 2022. With weight savings of 3 kg across the wheel line-up, compared with current state-of-the-art steel truck wheels, Maxion’s lightweight wheels can add a payload increase of 40 kg or more. Lightweight, high-performance wheel expertise has made Maxion Wheels the leader in the supply of steel truck wheels. This new generation, beginning with the first wheel, a 22.5 x 11.75, will raise the standard even higher. Maxion Wheels has a unique Lightweighting Process that integrates all performance and design parameters into advanced structural and simulation tools. Maxion experts use this information, combined with their materials expertise and production know-how to identify solutions that combine meaningful savings with the highest possible performance. Wheels are one of the heavier components on a truck, making weight savings a priority for fleets. Reducing wheel mass, while preserving safety, quality and performance, can benefit both fuel efficiency and payload. Maxion Wheels, a division of Iochpe-Maxion, is the world’s leading steel and aluminum wheel supplier. Our low-carbon expertise and energy-efficient designs help cars, buses, trucks and trailers achieve real-world carbon footprint reductions. Our diverse global teams and inclusive culture powers every advance we make.
