New Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheel sizes available
March 1, 2009
Due to increased popularity of the Dura-Flange® treatment, Alcoa added new wheel sizes to the already existing range of Dura-Flange® wheels. Today Dura-Flange® wheels are also available in dimension 22.5 x 11.75, both with 120 mm and 135 mm offset.
The total range of Dura-Flange wheels now consists of sizes 19.5 x 7.50, 19.5 x 8.25, 22.5 x 8.25, 22.5 x 9.00 and 22.5 x 11.75, 120 and 135 mm offset.
Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels have a proprietary treatment on the wheel that provides a protective shield to prevent rim wear. This design feature makes Dura-Flange® wheels most appropriate for applications where loads are heavy and prone to shifting, causing tyre walls to rub against the wheel rims. Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels are the only aluminium wheels on the market today that are protected from this type of wear, giving them at least double the life of other aluminium wheels.
