One Piece Alloy Construction

Across the range of series, Gear wheels are all made with a one piece cast wheel method of construction using aluminum alloy. This maintains two factors at a balance. With a one piece casting method Gear wheels offer several advantages that include a higher inert density which thus makes the wheel tougher and harder to wear down. It also gives the wheels a light weight as compared to steel or forged iron wheels hence making them a great choice for off road racing.

Common Sizes

All Gear wheel are made in three common wheel sizes for trucks and sizes: 18 and 20 inch size options. This makes them compatible with a variety of truck makes. Some wheels in the Gear Wheels line up however fall slightly lower or higher to that range. The 725MB Big Block Gear Wheel for instance has a 22 inch option making it a suitable choice for any off roader who wants a larger wheel to cope with the added lift on his truck.

Bolts

A large number of Gear Wheels have an 8 bolt pattern around the center cap. It is a good feature for off road wheels since it maintains a firm grip to the axle in the event of a strenuous expedition that requires utilizing the wheel’s maximum power. Gear wheel series such as the 726C Big Block wheel have addition 5 and 6 bolt pattern option for custom bolt applications.
