TRP Aluminum Wheels
February 1, 2013 - Products
TRP announces the availability of aluminum wheels for all makes of trucks and trailers, offering significant weight reduction and fuel efficiency benefits to operators everywhere.
Available in 22.5-inch and 24.5-inch sizes in both machined and high-polish finishes, TRP aluminum wheels are forged from one piece of corrosion-resistant aluminum for added strength and durability.
They also come with a 5-year warranty, providing truck fleets and operators worry-free service.
The cooler-running TRP aluminum wheels also improve tire and brake life. With lower overall maintenance costs and a better appearance, TRP aluminum wheels offer added value as a replacement option for used trucks and trailers.
Replacing cracked or damaged wheels with lighter, more durable TRP aluminum wheels also gives operators the chance to avoid costly out-of-service violations during roadside inspections.
The North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, published by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, establishes clear parameters for out-of-service violations. If inspectors find any circumferential crack on the rim, any crack exceeding three inches on the disc wheel, a crack extending between any two holes or two or more cracks anywhere on the disc wheel, they can declare a truck out-of-service.
