Aftermarket Wheels - Passenger Cars and Light Truck - Performance Requirements and Test Procedures
This SAE Recommended Practice provides performance, sampling, and certifying requirements, test procedures, and marking requirements for aftermarket wheels intended for normal highway use on passenger cars, light trucks, and multipurpose passenger vehicles. For aftermarket wheels on trailers drawn by passenger cars, light trucks or multipurpose vehicles, see SAE J1204. These performance requirements apply only to wheels made of materials included in Table 1 and Table 2. New nomenclature and terms are added to clarify wheel constructions typically not used in OEM applications. The testing procedures and requirements are based on SAE standards listed in the references.
Rationale: In the last 5 years Aftermarket Composite Wheels have developed in the passenger car and light truck market and SAE J3204_202009 - 'Aftermarket Composite Wheels Made of Matrix Material and Fiber Reinforcement Intended for Normal Highway Use - Test Procedures and Performance Requirements' was developed and published to serve that segment of the industry. A reference was made to SAE J2530 in J3204 so an update is required to add a reference to J3204 in J2530.
