Public Transit Wheels & Runflats
Many people mover applications that are produced today have a more demanding weight specification, added mobility requirement or mechanical features that may require a specially designed wheel & runflat assembly. Hutchinson offers a modular runflat that is designed to fit a Hutchinson two-piece aluminum wheel. Hutchinson also offers a runflat solution to fit a one-piece drop center wheel design.
