TMC Australia, best known for special purpose axles and airbag suspension solutions, now provides its clientele with a full package of running gear equipment – including a set of steel or alloy wheels for each trailer.

“For some years now, TMC has enjoyed a strong following for its axle and suspension equipment amongst the major tipper, skel trailer and machinery carrier builders around Australia,” TMC Managing Director Brendan Dullard says. “As a result, we were constantly being asked for a more reasonably priced option regarding both steel and alloy wheels.

“Over the past 4 years, in conjunction with our overseas suppliers, we have developed a range of steel wheels and alloys specifically for the OEM trailer market, which have a quality level second to none. Our alloy wheels, imported from Taiwan, carry a full 5-year warranty.”

One trailer manufacturer who is happy to testify for the quality of TMC’s wheel product is Tuff Trailers of Crestmead, Queensland. “We started using the TMC alloys more than 2 years ago,” Tuff’s Managing Director Denis Di Pasquale says. “We buy most of our axle and suspension equipment from TMC anyway, because they customize each axle set for us. Most of our trailers are quite unique in one way or another and dealing with TMC makes it much easier for us to source exactly what the customer wants. TMC have helped us a lot, so we like to return the favour. Their alloy wheels have performed extremely well, our customers are well satisfied with them.”

Another manufacturer using the TMC package is Davey Consolidated in Toowoomba. Sales Manager at Davey’s trailer division, Adrian Gordon says, “we use a lot of TMC gear, both mechanical suspension and airbag, on our Rhino trailers and our Lusty low-loaders. We buy from TMC because we know who we are dealing with. Their product is good, not the cheapest, but if ever there is any sort of problem, we just need to call Bob or Brendan, they jump in and fix it straightaway, no questions asked. We have been buying their steel wheels for more than three years, they always have plenty of stock and the goods never fail to arrive here on time.”
