Tanker maker forges ahead with Xlite wheels09 August 2017

Tanker manufacturer RTN Clayton Vallely has taken delivery of its 500th Xlite forged aluminium wheel from MWheels.

The Barnsley-based company has specified the wheels since March 2014, primarily as fitted units with tyres from Bridgestone, Goodyear and Dunlop.

John Newell, commercial director for RTN Clayton Vallely, says: “To be the best we have to ensure that every element of every tanker is manufactured to the highest design standards and fitted with the best original equipment, and Xlite forged aluminium wheels definitely meet all our strict sourcing and performance criteria.

“Reliability, safety, weight saving and aesthetics are all key reasons why we have selected the product, above which MWheels has constantly provided a fully fitted unit service which has been second to none in terms of its technical excellence and just-in-time delivery.”

Xlite, along with Xbrite+, are five times stronger and 40% lighter than standard steel equivalents. Xlite is available in machined and polished finishes, while Xbrite+ goes through several automated treatment stages resulting in high corrosion resistance and shine. Wheels are available in 17.5, 19.5 and 22.5 inches.
