Accu-Flange aluminum wheels feature a specially-treated rim designed that reduces the rim flange wear seen in heavy-haul, shifting-load and frequent stop-start applications, said the company. The treatment bonds to the aluminum substrate forming a barrier that reduces abrasion between the tire wall and wheel rim, according to Accuride.
Accu-Flange is available for size ranges 19.5 x 7.5-inch 40160 to 24.5 x 8.25-inch 40550 models, which have maximum loads per wheel of 6,700 lbs. and 12,800 lbs., respectively. Customers can order Accu-Flange wheels in Accuride’s SP (standard polish), XP (extra polish) and Accu-Armor finishes. The Accu-Flange treatment is warranted for two years from the date of manufacture.
