Accuride steel wheels approved for higher PSI rating

Accuride steel wheels approved for higher PSI rating

Several models of Accuride's steel wheels are now approved for use with higher PSI.

Accuride announced three of their steel wheels have been tested and approved for a new increased tire inflation rate of 125 PSI. The higher inflation ratings expand the range of tire choices available to trucking fleets, Accuride said.

This new rating applies to wheels with part numbers 51408, 51487 and 51637. As of Feb. 1, the rim stamp on those models was altered to reflect the new load rating; however, no other changes were made to the design, components, or manufacturing process of the wheels, Accuride said.
