Looking for a lightweight aluminum wheel? It took a while for us to find an aluminum wheel we thought was worthy of the Aerovault and this is it!
This one piece aluminum wheel compliments the Aerovault’s design, comes with Carlisle Radial eight ply N-speed rated (87 mph) tires and weighs five pounds less than each of the Aerovault’s standard three piece steel wheels and six ply tires.
This upgrade is for five wheels and tires instead of the standard steel wheels and six ply tires.
What’s the difference between the standard six ply tires and the upgraded eight ply tires? They are both N speed rated (87mph) so the difference is the amount of weight they are rated to carry. Six ply tires are rated at 1820 pounds each. This is a total weight of 7280 pounds. The GVW (gross vehicle weight) rating of the Aerovault is 7000 lbs. Six ply tires are rated to carry more weight than your Aerovault trailer is rated to carry so they are plenty strong enough. Eight ply tires are rated at 2150 pounds each. This is a total weight of 8600 pounds… way over the gross vehicle weight of the Aerovault. Some people however want a large safety margin on their tires so they choose to go with eight ply. We offer them as a nice combination with these lightweight one piece aluminum wheels.
Note: Moon disc covers do not fit the aluminum wheels. The aluminum wheels comes as seen here.
