Stronger, better, maintenance free
Speedline Truck Alloy Wheels are made from T6061 aluminium alloy which is forged into shape. This method provides a one-piece wheel which is significantly stronger than steel, and therefore able to carry a heavier payload. With no welds or seams to weaken the engineering integrity, they are stronger and more resilient to road damage. Should a vehicle hit a kerb then a Speedline Truck wheel would be significantly less likely to suffer any compression damage, compared to a conventional steel wheel.
Similarly, routine maintenance is also reduced as the alloy is naturally a highly corrosion-resistant material. With steel wheels, when the surface becomes chipped from road debris it is necessary to periodically repaint them.
Higher payload potential
Whatever size steel wheel you currently run, the equivalent Speedline Truck alloy will carry a higher payload. For example, a Speedline Truck wheel in the size of 22.5” x 9” is tested to carry around 250kg more. But not only do they carry the highest payloads possible, they're also incredibly light. The same Speedline Truck wheel can weigh just 23.7kg – over 17kg lighter or some 42% less.
You can convert the saved wheel weight into additional payload, no matter what type of vehicle you run. With total savings of between 90kg to 270kg per vehicle – over time, your new wheels will pay for themselves with the additional payload carried, and the reduced number of journeys needed.
Improved fuel efficiency
We all recognise that a lighter vehicle needs less effort to move. Fitting Speedline Truck Alloy Wheels to your vehicle will reduce its weight and deliver a reduction in fuel consumption. Additionally, thanks to the better concentricity, or roundness, of forged alloy wheels they also enjoy less rolling resistance compared to conventional steel wheels. Real-life tests have shown that after fitting Speedline Truck Alloys, you can expect to reduce fuel consumption by a minimum of 1%, with some sectors enjoying reductions of double this.
In line with Tructyre's commitment to lower environmental impact, we're proud to recommend Speedline Truck Alloys for their positive contribution towards reducing CO2 emissions from commercial vehicle fleets.
Lower maintenance costs
Excessive heat is the enemy of your vehicles brakes and tyres. Here, Speedline Truck Alloys will increase the life of these critical components, as aluminium is over three times more heat conductive in comparison with steel. By dissipating heat away, they operate at a lower temperature which can extend their service life by over 15%.
Additionally, the better concentricity of Speedline Truck wheels allows them to roll more smoothly than the standard fit steel wheels. This reduces one cause of vibration, which in turn reduces the wear on wheel bearings and suspension components.
Best visual appearance
We can all recognise the commercial advantages of Speedline Truck Alloys, but for some markets we know that their good looks are simply crucial. To ensure they contribute to making the best visual appearance for your vehicles, their design team works hard to ensure they are the most attractive wheels on the market.
Manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminium, they will look great for the longest time possible; typically up to 20 years. When you choose to sell your vehicle, you will also be rewarded with a significant return on your original investment; up to 50% in some cases.
