  • Patent number: 4453776
    Abstract: A one-piece, cast vehicle wheel rim for tubeless tires comprises a rim portion and a supporting ring extending from the rim portion. The rim portion has a drop center portion between first and second side walls. The support ring mounts the rim on a disc and has a recess between its end areas. A valve hole is formed in the first side wall of the rim portion adjacent the recess for mounting a valve such that the valve extends into the recess. Radially extending ribs can connect a shoulder of the rim portion to the end areas of the support ring on opposite sides of the valve hole. The ribs can be angularly oriented toward each other in a radially outward direction and can be spaced from the valve hole by a distance between about 15 mm and about 30 mm. When used in combination with another rim to form dual wheels, a coupling on the support ring attaches the rims. The coupling and recess permit the valve to be exposed for ready access.
