Tread Cap™ Wheels and Tires

Tread Cap™

Our tread cap™ assembly is altogether different. Neither inflated air nor air pockets are involved. It’s the cellular structure of the hub that provides the support, strength and exceptional durability. The injection molded tread cap™ is stretched, mounted and fit firmly onto the hub.

CEW is a leading pioneer in the development of tread cap wheels.  Our patented technology helps provide durable long lasting wheels without the worry of flat spotting.


We developed tread caps initially as a competitive replacement to the more expensive semi-pneumatic rubber or polyurethane tires.

Tread caps are fixed over a composite shock absorbing cell structure allowing us to reduce costs and replicate some of the advantages of more traditional style wheels.

Our patented technology produces a lightweight, maintenance free wheel that will never rust.

The materials used are recyclable, making tread cap wheels environmentally friendly.
