Our wheels are forged from our facility in Italy using high-quality steel and then transported to Manchester for processing, finishing and assembly.
We can supply our wheels as loose components, providing the customer the flexibility to handle assembly themselves at their depot.
Alternatively, we can supply it as part of our wheelset overhaul process should wheels replacement be necessary. Our wheels can be machined from the forgings to include plate drilling for fitting of disc brakes and oil injection holes.
