R&K offers a full line of wheels for very application. From light weight applications such as hand trucks and light duty carts, to much heavier and demanding applications, R&K has a wheel to meet your needs.
R&K not only offers a full line of standard, off- the-shelf wheels, but also specializes in manufacturing custom wheels per customer specifications. This capability allows R&K to provide a very valuable service to not only Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) but to anyone who requires a wheel that is not available anywhere else.
Standard Aluminum Wheels
R&K’s sand-cast aluminum cores combine weight, economy and long life with maximum strength. Our single-wall construction offers a light yet durable wheel with the ability to absorb impact.
Loadmaster Polyurethane Wheels
For longer service, heavier loads, easier roll and non-marking performance, R&K Loadmasters use polyurethane tread permanently molded to the aluminum core. Resistant to oil, water, grease and most chemicals, the Loadmasters cut the cost of replacing wheels.
Polyurethane Carpet Tread Wheels
This is The Quiet Wheel. Ideal for easy rolling over carpeted floors, the R&K Poly Carpet Wheel is a premium wheel with a radius tread that makes it easy to roll and maneuver. It also performs well on hard surfaces. It has high load capacity and is absolutely non-marking.
Balloon Cushion Wheels
These high resiliency wheels with solid balloon rubber tires provide maximum shock absorption. Tread surface is rounded to minimize friction and increase rollability. The R&K Balloon Wheel is famous for its superior shock protection and rebounding characteristics.
This is R&K’s most affordable line of wheels. Ideal for hand trucks or load wheels, the Richmond Wheel is made of high tensile strength precision cast aluminum with a black SBR or gray natural rubber tread.
Richmond Balloon Wheel
The Richmond Balloon Cushion features the same high tensile aluminum wheel with a high resiliency, solid rubber tire for maximum shock absorption. Richmond Balloon Cushion Wheels are made with the same ultra-high-quality rubber tread used on R&K Balloon Wheels.
Polyurethane Pallet Rollers
R&K pallet rollers are built with high quality polyurethane and precision sealed high-load ball bearings. Our pallet rollers are field-tested and proven under the most grueling real-life industrial conditions.
All Aluminum Wheels (No Tread)
R&K Aluminum tire-less wheels are manufactured with the same high standards of all our wheels. For applications that warrant a solid aluminum wheel.
Aluminum Pallet Rollers (No Tread)
R&K aluminum pallet rollers also come with high-load-rated ball bearings. They undergo the same rigid testing as our poly pallet rollers.
Phenolic wheels are non-metallic, engineered for extreme loads. They are resistant to heavy shock, temperature swings and damage from most forms of moisture and vapor corrosion.
Phenolic Wheels with Neoprene Tread
R&K phenolic/neoprene wheels are resistant to animal fats and byproducts, acids, detergents, oil and water. They are made to order.
Casters (Less Wheels)
Built to last, R&K casters are zinc plated and feature a double ball bearing raceway to give exceptionally easy pivoting. The casters fit R&K’s wide range of wheels; casters may be purchased mounted or unmounted.
Not every application requires a standard, off-the-shelf wheel. R&K can modify most of its existing wheels or manufacture a completely new wheel per customer specifications.
