New Chromtec® Lightweight Composite Wheels for LD Trucks

Lacks Wheel Trim Systems has announced  that its Chromtec® lightweight composite wheels will be featured on a 2016 full-size pickup truck.

Shipments have begun. Lacks will provide two new 20-inch versions of its innovative Chromtec composite wheel technology for this 2016 truck program. The wheels are the first application of Lacks’ next-generation Chromtec technology and they are the first-ever, fuel-efficient wheels designed specifically for a truck.

According to the company, benefits of Chromtec wheels include: ·

  • Up to 4 lb. per wheel lighter than the previous wheels used on this platform
  • Up to 10 lb. per wheel lighter than competitors 20 inch wheels
  • A world class finish, design flexibility and proven durability.

“Our composite wheels allow this OEM to feature the lightest weight, high-volume, 20 inch wheels in the full-size truck market,” said James Ardern, General Manager, Lacks Wheel Trim Systems.
