BART Tires

For the past eight years, San Francisco Bay Area commuters have relied on wheels from ORX. THE BART system is unique in North America in that it uses wheels with steel tires on aluminum hubs. Changing the tires is a technically challenging job. To attain the precise control needed for assembly of the tires, ORX developed a process not used previously that greatly increased control of the heating of the tires which are shrink fitted to the aluminum wheel centers.
