Title: Wheel mounting apparatus

Abstract: A wheel mounting apparatus includes a wheel hub flange having a wheel mounting portion to be connected to a wheel, and having a hub mounting portion to be connected to a wheel hub. Alternatively, the wheel mounting portion and the wheel hub can be formed as an integral unit, and the hub mounting portion can be eliminated. Ventilation passages are provided between the wheel mounting portion of the wheel hub flange and the hub mounting portion or the wheel hub. Thus, good ventilation and cooling of the brake assembly, which is provided between the wheel rim and the wheel hub, can be achieved.
