Mirror Polished  819521
Dura-Bright®   819521DB

Rim flanges are engineered to a unified rim flange design, allowing to accommodate both adhesive and clip-on balancing weights.
The new FrontRunner® is interchangeable with the current wheels and has passed European LBF Eurocycle tests, as well as SAE J267 wheels/rim truck tests. Volvo Trucks will switch completely from the FrontRunner® with 4500 kg load index to the new wheel with 5000 kg load index. The wheel is also available at trailer OEMs for vehicles with 10 ton load axles.
