The success and popularity of Cushion Tread Wheels prompted AEROL CO., to make available a series of wheels with similar tire construction for mounting on straight stub axles and in casters. These new wheels have a high profile tire using two rubber compounds: the face of the tread is of a tough, abrasion resistant compound and the remainder of the tire is of a soft heat resistant, energy absorbing rubber. The wheel core is a lightweight aluminum casting. High Profile wheels have been produced in 16 inch, 12 inch, and 10 inch sizes.
