Alcoa Wheels - The ultimate choice for commercial vehicles
Alcoa wheels are not only the lightest and the strongest in the market place, you'll find all the advantages of Alcoa wheels listed below :
Forged from one single piece of aluminium without any welds.
Unrivalled strength and impact resistance.
JWL-T, TÜV and LBF tested.
5 years warranty regardless of the distance covered.
In general, Alcoa wheels have demonstrated a lifetime of 15 years.
Better heat dissipation
Because aluminium dissipates heat better than steel, brake and tyre wear are significantly reduced.
The brightness of our ‘Mirror Polished’ wheels is only possible by using forged aluminium. The best choice for everyone who wants the ultimate look! Alcoa supplies its own easy-to-use cleaners to keep the wheels looking brand new.
Alcoa wheels are machined on a lathe which makes them more accurately round than steel wheels. This results in more comfortable driving and less tyre wear.
More environmentally friendly
The increased loading capacity, due to the lighter wheels, saves the number of journeys needed to transport goods. Fuel savings due to the reduction in mass are up to 2.5% (lower moment of inertia). Alcoa wheels are also easy to recycle. For recycling aluminium, only 5% of the energy necessary for the original production from bauxite is used
Returns on investment possible in 2 years
If a truck’s maximum loading capacity is used, the payback on Alcoa wheels can be two years or even less. Reduced weight, less wear on the chassis and fuel savings also contribute to an effective ROI.
