Peterbilt Adds Aluminum Disc Wheels to Tractors
Oct 1, 2001 12:00 PM
New lighter-weight aluminum disc wheels are available for Peterbilt Motor Co's entire product line.
Each new wheel is about three pounds lighter, for an average weight savings of 30 pounds for a typical three-axle tractor — and features chamfered hand holes for an easier grip and improved appearance.
The new Peterbilt aluminum wheels have the same disc thickness as the wheels they replace and are available in all current sizes and polish options. All trucks now ordered with the Peterbilt aluminum wheel option will be delivered with the new lighter-weight version.
