JANESVILLE, Wis. – Moose Racing has rolled out two new wheel options for powersports rides on two or four tires.

For the MX crowd, quality wheels can be a major expense. Moose said its XCR wheels offer excellent strength and durability at an attractive price-point.

Each XCR wheel features aircraft-quality 7000-series aluminum rims that are heat-treated in three stages for maximum strength. The hubs are forged, then machined, from 6061-T6 aluminum for improved durability compared to stock cast or billet hubs, and each one-piece hub is designed to match perfectly with stock-pattern sprockets and rotors, eliminating the need to purchase additional carriers or adapters. Finally, T305 stainless steel spokes and 7075-T6 aluminum nipples promise a durable finish that keeps spokes tight, moto after moto, the company said.

These XCR wheel sets retail for $559.95 and are available for nearly every MX model made from Japan or Austria.

ATV riders can also look to the Moose Utility Division for its new 427X line of wheels. Reportedly designed to handle anything that a modern ATV can dish out, the 427X is able to handle load capacities from 675 lbs. for the 12x7 front up to 1,150 lbs for the 12x8 rear, which meets or exceeds all current market requirements according to Moose.

Each wheel is also X-rayed on the production line to ensure quality and reliability, the company said.

Finally, the new 427X replicates the look of an eight-lug heavy-duty truck wheel, for a beefy industrial appearance. The 427X is available in an extensive range of sizes, with pricing ranging from $89.95 to $107.95.
