RIMEX wheels outperform our competitors with stronger lock rings, heavier flanges and fully machined, precision gutter discs. The results are increased wheel life, efficiency and dependability. Our customers not only save time and money, but also ensure their operations are the most productive and safest possible.
To guarantee service and performance for years to come, RIMEX continues to work with leading tyre manufacturers in perfecting wheel and rim designs for future success. And remember, we can custom manufacture wheels and rims to suit your specifications.
Increase Equipment Availability by 12.5 Days Each Year with DGS/IGLR Wheels!
The chart to the right demonstrates the potential time savings achieved with the installation of the DGS/IGLR combination over industry standard five piece rims.
The DGS/IGLR Series combination saved 300 hours or 12.5 days of equipment availability per year!
(Based on a fleet of 20, 240t, haul trucks with an average of 153 inside tyre changes and 39 outside tyre changes per year.)

The revolutionary Double Gutter Service (DGS) Series is a RIMEX TSR wheel/rim assembly with two bead bands, two side rings, one two-piece lock ring and one standard lock ring. The DGS was developed as a position-sensitive outer dual so the inside tire could be easily mounted/demounted without removing the outer wheel/rim base. It is designed with safety and time savings in mind — tyre changes are completed in a fraction of the time.
RIMEX DGS wheels can be installed to haul truck outer dual positions without upgrading the inner dual wheels. Now the inner dual tyres can be changed without removing the outer dual. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of injury to tyre service personnel.
In 1988, RIMEX introduced the Machined Extreme Service (MES) Series of wheels and rims to address the serious impact radial tyres had on rim performance. The increased flexibility in the sidewalls caused movement in the bead seat area. Recognising the problem, RIMEX pioneered the first wheel produced using fully machined sections—the MES.
Today, MES wheels are still a popular choice and in addition to the standard 5 piece assembly, they are available with DGS or IGLR components.
Available in wheels sizes: 29 – 63”
The unique design of the Taper Secure Radial (TSR) Series uses a taper concept to secure all components in place. Absolute stability of components and the tyre is achieved as movement between parts is eliminated. When the tyre is inflated, the rim parts lock into their tapered landing areas.
The key benefit of the TSR design is absolute tyre support. The wheel flanges DO NOT MOVE on the wheel base. The tyre is anchored with complete stability and no air pressure is lost. As well as extending tyre life, the life of rim components is increased as there is no wearing or fatiguing of the parts from component movement.
IGLR wheels are designed for the front steer and inner dual positions.
When IGLR wheels are installed on all four loader wheel positions, tyre changes become quick and easy; allowing stubborn tyre beads to be dealt with when time permits.
IGLR components can be pre-mounted, using the RIMEX Pre-mounting Stand, which significantly reduces tyre servicing downtime.

Customer demands motivated RIMEX to manufacture a ‘wedge’ style rim to replace the standard 57″ and 63″ OEM rims. The Machined Secure Taper (MST) Series of wheels rims is is available in either the standard 5-piece, DGS or IGLR style assemblies.
RIMEX improved the design by ensuring it is fully machined and truly round in critical areas. The knurless design eliminates indexing or slippage between bead seat bands and tyre beads.
MST lock rings have two engraved grooves, making it easy to identify and compatible with MST and WTR components only.
In my capacity as Tyre Manager for a mining company in the Bowen Basin Queensland I have used and would recommend the RIMEX product. I have found the fit and quality of the parts to be very good and the workmanship on repairs to be of a high standard.
