Wheels for Commercial Vehicles 800001

While the basis of wheel design has evolved by using current technological materials and concepts, the manufacturing and design is still inexact and partially an art.
This paper reviews wheels intended for use on commercial vehicles, including light, medium, and heavy trucks, truck trailers, transit, and inter-city buses. The paper also covers spoke-type wheels, demountable rims, and disc-type wheels with rims from 13 inch diameter to 24 inch diameter. The paper encompasses a brief history, historical and market trends by vehicular types, design parameters, standardization, industrial technical committees, and future trends in design and materials.
