MWS Centres

Classic splined centres

All MWS splined centres are forged using modern techniques to produce a very strong and durable product. When a component is forged the metal is compacted resulting in improved strength characteristics when compared to cast, pressed or machined parts.

Centre sizes are defined by the maximum size of the outer bearing (in mm) which can be used with the hub and do not relate directly to a measurement on the centre itself. Please see the table at the bottom of this page for more information.

Please note: Other classic centres are available - contact us for details
