Alcoa Wheels designed for Tyre Monitoring Systems- with Dual Valve Holes

Well it has been long awaited-  but finally here- Wheel Manufacture have seen the evolution and demand by Heavy Vehicle users for TMSystems,  with Alcoa being the forefront leader in providing their Wheel Rims with Dual Air Valve Stem Holes!

Traditionally, wheels really only had a single Valve Hole in the Rim to accommodate the standard Air Valve Stem for re- pressurisation.

Today, however, forefront leaders in Wheel Manufacturing like Alcoa have listened to the needs of their customers and have taken another step towards providing ease of maintenance in adding Dual Holes to also accommodate an External Sensors of TMSystems.

Now with Dual Hole it means that one Hole can be used for the normal Air Valve Stem for re- pressurising the Tyre and the other Hole can be used to add a fixed / short Air Stem for the Tyre Sensor.

Permanent fixed TMSystem Tyre Sensors on the wheel rims mean: 

  • Never having to remove the Sensor for Tyre re- pressurisation- and no more lost Sensors.
  • No need for locking brackets to support the Inner Tyre Valve Stem.
  • Short  / Solid Steel Air Valve Stems can be used for more accurate and rapid tyre and rim Temperature detection.

Well done Alcoa!
