Australian-made, UV protected and corrosion resistant
Our plastic-centred wheels are designed with thicker UV protected polypropylene sections in a multi-web design, making them stronger than most imported steel centres.
Combined with our standard 4 ply tyres and premium butt-joined tubes, these wheels offer excellent performance in wet and corrosive environments.
These pneumatics are supplied with butyl rubber seamless (butt-joined) tubes as standard. These premium tubes provide greater reliability and longer life than cheaper alternatives. Tubes can be replaced if originals are punctured*. Plastic-centred wheels are the low cost alternative, with excellent performance in wet and corrosive environments.
Plastic-centred pneumatics with butyl rubber seamless tubes
Plastic rims are Australian-made—injection moulded here at Fallshaw.
Thick sections, large radii, multi-web design for strength (stronger than most imported steel centres).
Corrosion resistant polypropylene with UV fade protection.
High engineering standards for wobble-free wheels.
High quality butyl rubber seamless (butt-joined) tubes.
Bearings for pneumatic wheels
Heavy duty 'deep groove' shielded bearings (indicated in order codes with PWB) fitted to a toughened heavy duty housing enables true running and extra strength, or plain bearings (PWA). Deep groove bearings can last up to 3 times longer than normal pressed bearings. Precision bearings (indicated in order codes with a PQ) provide ultra-tight tolerances. Roller bearings (indicated with an PR) are available in 200 x 50.
Four ply (4 ply) for longer, rougher life. Many imports use 2 ply.
For wheels pulled or pushed at low speeds (not driven) the tread pattern is not critical. The following are standard. Other patterns can be offered by negotiation.
It is normal for air filled wheels to lose tyre pressure over time even if they are not being used and it’s important for your safety that you ensure that the wheels are pumped up to their recommended PSI before use—alternatively you can use our semi-pneumatic puncture proof wheels in applications that require wheels to never go flat.
