Wheels

Overview

Griffin® has been in full production of diesel wheels since 1966. Using our proven design, we produce diesel wheels cast to such close tolerances that they are better balanced than most steel wheels. Such balance contributes to maximum traction, smooth ride, and longer wheel life.

Key Facts

All Griffin® diesel wheels have witness grooves so the recontouring operation will better produce matched tapes throughout the locomotive.

  • T40 – 41” diameter with 3.0” rim
  • D42 – 42” diameter with 2.5” rim
  • A43 – 43” diameter with 3.0” rim
