NEW! GEN2 Rear Simulator Features

GEN2 Rear 22.5″ – 24.5″ Stainless Steel Simulators

GEN2 Simulators and front simulators are available in a mirror or black powder-coated finish.

The New GEN2 Rear Simulators adds more features, easier installation and a lower cost.

The GEN2 RW2004 wheel simulator has many of the same great features our original UN2000. Same heavy gauge 304 non-magnetic stainless steel with a mirror shine finish to simulate the look of aluminum wheels.

New GEN2 Features:

  • NEW! Pressed on high hats, and lug nut covers, for easier installation and reduced weight
  • NEW! Low-profile, lug nut cover styling makes cleaning a snap.
  • NEW! Upgraded mounting systems with valve extensions tabs for easier installation and access.

GEN2 simulators fit all trucks and trailers with 10 lug hub piloted wheels

The GEN2 mounting systems are engineered to fit all 10 lug hub piloted wheels, and fit onto the excess stud of the lug nuts, even if there is as little as a ¼” of excess stud.

A Brief History of RWC’s Universal Rear Simulators

GEN2 22.5" – 24.5" Rear SimulatorIn the 90’s the only wheel simulators that were available for mid to heavy duty trucks with 20” or 22.5” wheels were imported from China. These simulators required removing lug nuts to install, and fit each wheel one for one. Because of this, there were over 12 different imported wheel sets to fit each wheel. Unfortunately, they also only simulated the look of the same steel wheel.

Then in 1994, Realwheels created and patented the RWUN2000. The first American Made universal rear wheel simulator for 20” and 22.5” wheels. With the UN2000 there was no need to remove lug nuts to install. It was universally designed to fit multiple truck wheels sizes, hub or stud piloted and with different hand hold configurations. Now distributors could stock one 22.5” rear wheel simulator that fit over 12 different wheel combinations.

Plus when the UN2000 was installed it simulated the look of aluminum wheels, the most desired wheel look.

Additionally they came standard with stainless steel braided air valve extensions, so a customer could easily check and fill tire pressure conveniently from the outside of the wheel simulator.

Now fast forward to 2020, 26 years later. RealWheels has created our latest universal rear wheel simulators with the new GEN2 22.5 rear wheel simulator, RW2004.

This GEN2 RW2004 wheel simulator has many of the same great features our original UN2000. Same heavy gauge 304 non-magnetic stainless steel with a mirror shine finish to simulate the look of aluminum wheels. Our new Gen 2 mounting system are still

This GEN2 RW2004 wheel simulator has many of the same great features our original UN2000. Same heavy gauge 304 non-magnetic stainless steel with a mirror shine finish to simulate the look of aluminum wheels. Our new Gen 2 mounting system are still adjustable and fits 22.5 X 7.50” 22.5” x 8.25” and 22.5 x 9.00” wheels.

What’s the difference?

GEN2 Rear Simulator Easy Bracket InstallationOur new GEN2 simulators now have pressed on high hats, and lug nut covers, for easier installation and reduced weight. The GEN2 mounting systems are engineered to fit all 10 lug hub piloted wheels, and fit onto the excess stud of the lug nuts, even if there is as little as a ¼” of excess stud. In the past our UN2000 would only fit a trucks drive axle. Now our new Gen2 22.5” simulators fits all trucks and trailers with 10 lug hub piloted wheels.

The biggest difference between our first Generation UN2000 rear simulator, and our new GEN2 rear simulator is cost. The UN2004 costs less than the predicessor and is more feature rich. At an unprecedented time when prices are rising RealWheels has engineered a new and improved American Made Rear simulator that costs less.

Mounting

RealWheels has over 30 years’ experience developing mounting systems for wheel simulators. Our innovative designs have been awarded numerous patents.

  • Engineered to fit securely to steel disc or aluminum wheels with our patented over-the-lug mounting systems.
  • The hook mount systems do not require excess stud.
  • These systems do not disturb the torque of the lug nuts.
