Light Weight Aluminum Wheels

New lighter-weight aluminum disc wheels are now available for Peterbilt’s entire product line. Each new Peterbilt wheel is about three pounds lighter-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 aluminum wheels have the same disc thickness as the wheels they replace and are available in all current sizes and polish options. All trucks that were ordered with the aluminum wheel option after Jan. 22 will be delivered with the new lighter-weight version.
