The Best Wheels for Automotive Applications

Depending on the configuration and wheel choice, our automotive wheels can deliver a carrying capacity of between 1,200 lbs to more than 40,000 lbs, making them ideal for a variety of uses within the automotive industry. When choosing a wheel for your automotive applications, we recommend the following:

  • RWM Signature Premium Rubber: We engineered these wheels to have the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any wheel in the industry. With a lightweight, reinforced nylon core and non-marking elastomeric rubber tread, they provide excellent floor protection, continuous towing, and noise reduction.
  • Urethane Infinity Vulkollan: Thanks to the high-quality Vulkollan® polyurethane material that these wheels are made of, they offer superior abrasion resistance and tear strength. They are also extremely reliable and durable.
  • Whisper Urethane: As the name implies, these wheels are great when you require low noise levels. They are also ideal for use on delicate flooring and bearing heavy loads.
  • Omega Urethane: The Omega Wheels offer many benefits, including carrying large loads at high speeds, resisting chunking and tearing, low maintenance costs, and it retains its bond at high speeds.
  • V-Groove: These high-strength track wheels are lightweight, but still have a carrying capacity of between 700 and 15,000 lbs, making them great for carrying heavy loads without adding significant weight to carts and other equipment.
  • Machined Steel Flanged: A highly versatile option, these wheels are ideal for a number of applications and can withstand many demanding environments.
  • Urethane on Polypropylene: To make these wheels, polyurethane is bonded to a high-density polypropylene core. This allows the wheels to hold up in wet conditions and have a resistance to oils, grease, and most solvents and chemicals.
  • Torus Urethane Wheel: This wheel is a great option for the automotive industry, as it was designed specifically for automotive manufacturing assembly lines! You’ll enjoy floor protection and noise reduction with these wheels.
  • Urethane on Iron: If you need a durable, long-lasting wheel that’s resistant to extreme temperatures, this is the wheel for you! They also provide floor protection, impact resistance, and quiet operation.
  • Ergo GT: For ease of maintenance and superior endurance, look towards the Ergo GT Wheels. They will perform reliably for extended periods under any conditions.
  • Ultra Thick Urethane: The thick tread on these wheels allows for a soft ride and quiet operation, making them useful in towing applications.
  • Forged Steel: These wheels are virtually indestructible! Extremely strong and with high load-bearing capacities, our Forged Steel wheels are ready for your rigorous applications.
  • Nylatron: If you need a wheel for heavy-duty applications, look no further! These wheels were designed with severe loads in mind, while still being easier on your floors than steel or iron wheels.
  • Cast Iron: These wheels offer extreme weight-bearing capacities, are capable for use in high-temperature applications, and are resistant to wet, harsh, and caustic environments. With all these benefits, this versatile wheel is useful for many automotive applications.
  • Urethane on Aluminum: Offering both durability and strength, these wheels are popular for use in automotive applications. They are non-slip, safe for floors, and have a high load-bearing capacity as compared to rubber wheels.
  • Automotive Urethane Wheel: With automotive in the name, it’s no surprise that we recommend these wheels for automotive applications! They are optimized for use within towlines and cellular work.
