  • RIMEX introduced the Machined Extreme Service (MES) Series of wheels and rims to address the serious impact radial tires had on rim performance. The increased flexibility in radial tire sidewalls caused movement in the bead seat area. Recognizing the problem, RIMEX pioneered the first wheel produced using fully machined sections—the MES. Since their introduction in 1988 MES wheels remain a popular choice, and, in addition to the standard 5 piece assembly, they are available with DGS or IGLR components for faster tire changes without removing the outer rim.
