*Depending on wheel sizes
Tests have proven that Alcoa® wheels are up to 5 times stronger than their steel equivalent. To show this, wheels are placed in a press until the wheel deforms by 5cm, results from this are that Alcoa®wheels can withstand a load of 71,200kg before it deforms and a steel wheel is deformed by 5cm at only 13,700kg!!
The Japanese JWL tests simulate a vehicle hitting a curb at a speed of 50 km/h, the test involves a 910kg weight is dropped onto the assembly. The results are that:
All of this results in less downtime for fleets and more time on the road! All Alcoa® wheels come with 5 years unlimited mileage warranty and typically last 20 years or more in service.
Alcoa® wheels stand out from others due to their superior and timeless design.

Wheel Styles include:
Ultra ONE® are Alcoa® Wheels lightest and strongest wheels.
They are made of the proprietary MagnaForce® alloy technology.
This alloy is 17 percent stronger than the currently existing industry standard, allowing to create lighter wheels without compromising on their strength.
Ultra ONE® Alcoa® Wheels are available in the following finishes:-
Dura-Flange® Alcoa® Wheels have a proprietary treatment that provides a protective shield to reduce rim flange wear, giving them up to double the lifetime compared to other aluminium wheels under the same conditions.
Dura-Flange® wheels are the most appropriate for transport where loads are heavy and prone to shifting, causing the tyre bead to rub against the wheel flange, such as:
Alcoa® wheels have a significant effect on the carbon footprint of commercial vehicles:
