The lightest wheels

Advantages of lighter wheels:

  • Increased loading capacity. If a truck's maximum loading capacity is used, the payback on Alcoa wheels can be two years or even less.
  • The lower unsprung mass reduces wear on suspensions and shock absorbers.
  • Fuel savings due to the reduction of mass can be up to 2.5 percent.
