American Force Wheels One For The Duallys

American Force Wheels: One For The Duallys

Based out of Miami, American Force Wheels started in 1995 as a wheel manufacturer that built custom wheels for small import and domestic car owners in the South Florida region. At the time, owner Ray Shadravan was focused on sports cars, but he always kept his eyes on the growing aftermarket for truck owners.

In 2003, Shadravan decided that he wanted to shift American Force’s manufacturing to truck wheels. However, he wasn’t convinced that truck owners would believe in the quality of his wheels just because their reputation with sports cars was so great. To make enthusiasts believe that the “proof was in the pudding,” Shadravan began creating?3/4-ton and 1-ton truck conversions to showcase their innovative wheel designs. Shadravan hired longtime friend Robert Martell (who is now the ?General Manager) were able to show the world what their wheels were capable of handling.

For American Force Wheels, business was good. They had a series of popular wheels that had developed a cult following with the dually crowd. However, their wheels were only selling well in Florida. Yet, in 2005, a series of hurricanes and tropical storms wreaked havoc across the Florida, but where there was some good that came from the storms.

As volunteers and rescue crews drove their trucks from the north to help clean up from hurricanes, they couldn’t help but notice the wheels on many Miami duallies. So, while these truck enthusiasts were in town for relief work, they began to notice Martell’s and Shadravan’s conversions. Soon calls were coming from all over the country for their wheels. It was the start of their legacy.

Different Than Rest

American Force Wheels is a leader in the aftermarket wheel industry. Because of their modern designs, versatility and durability, true truck enthusiasts have noticed the distinct craftsmanship that goes into all of American Force’s wheels.

American Force Wheels dually models give 3/4-ton and 1-ton truck owners who use their vehicles to tow the ability to run semi-truck or heavy-duty trailer commercial-grade tires in 19.5 or 22.5 sizes.

The use of the American Force Wheel dually wheel in conjunction with a commercial grade tire can take the strain off the load of any large truck. Just think for a moment about how many miles a semi truck travels each year. Commercial tires are specially made to go extreme distances and handle enormous load capacities without compromising traction.

According to the wheel brand, some drivers racking up to?20,000 miles per month, and they change tires three to four times annually, which gets absurdly expensive. By using an American Force Wheel dually wheel and commercial truck tire combo, drivers have reportedly seen three to four times longer tire life, which keeps them on the road longer with more money in the bank.

Another way American Force Wheels differs from its competition is that every product is custom – they carry no inventory at all.

“Since day one, American Force Wheels has made it part of our business operations to first listen to customer’s needs and wants,” says a spokesperson for the company. “(We) design a wheel that delivers the performance and looks desired.”
