MAK Launches first Light Truck and Camper Wheel

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) MAK Wheels recently announced that it has made the “strategic and commercial choice” to produce a wheel for Van, Light Truck and Campers.

The company reports that demand for this type of wheels has “come from society.” The new MAK HD! is intended to be attractive in terms of both its aesthetical and technical features and to be dedicated to this new group of end-users that MAK has decided to address.

MAK HD! features five spokes and is strong and tough enough to expressly carry the vehicles for which it is designed. In case you were wondering, HD! Stands for “Heavy Duties” and is also said to mean resistance. This feature is the most important on vans that are, for example, loaded with goods. The wheel’s five-hole connection can reportedly be used on every Light Truck on the market.

MAK HD! is available in the traditional Hyper Silver, and only in 6.5×16.
