LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Webb Wheel Products has introduced a line of platinum wheel-end assemblies combining the company’s platinum drum and aluminum hub.

The company claims that combination of components offers fleets the lightest weight assembly offered to the market with a reduction of 16lb per axle over traditional combinations.

Part of the weight savings comes from a new manufacturing material used on the platinum drum which offers long life, low wear and high heat transfer in addition to a lower weight, the company claims.

Meanwhile, the aluminum hub is 17lb lighter than a standard hub and nearly five pounds lighter than other aluminum hubs on the market. The company also says drums and studs are interchangeable with standard hubs.
