Is it safe to use used truck wheels?

used truck wheels

Used truck wheels and used truck rims represent a fantastic opportunity to save money, and especially so if they come with tyres.

We sell hundreds of used truck wheels every year and we always have plenty of stock available for immediate export. The used truck wheels we sell are sold as is, meaning we remove them from a vehicle and then sell them on in the condition they are in, although we may give them a brief clean to remove any heavy soiling.

Having sold hundreds of used truck wheels and rims, we can say that used truck wheels are 100 per cent safe to use providing that they are installed on a compatible vehicle.

We sell steel and alloy wheels, and wheels with tyres still on. We can also sell tyres and wheels separately and ship them out to you together.

It’s important to remember that different wheels are rated for different weights, so it is crucial that you buy a used wheel that is rated for your truck. If you need help with this, you can contact us on +44 (0)1262 679639 or by emailing sales@mwtractors.com and we will do our best to source the right wheels for you.

What should I look for in a used truck wheel?

If the wheel or wheels you purchase will be installed on an active and in-service truck, then the wheels or rims should be free from defects or if they have defects, then those defects should be minor and they should be repairable.

For instance, the wheel you choose should not be buckled, although it can have cracks if the cracks can be safely repaired to bring back the structural integrity of the wheel. With steel wheels, you should check for rusting and test the alloy for strength.

If the wheels you purchase have tyres, then this could save you even more money. Used truck tyres are safe to use so long as they are healthy and meet the minimal tread allowance in your country. We sell a wide range of used truck tyres that have been removed from Volvo, Iveco, Scania, Dennis, Foden and many other trucks. They vary in size and brand, and we have most sizes and brand available to go straight away.
