Strength

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 an Alcoa® wheel withstands a load of 71,200kg before it deforms and a steel wheel is deformed by 5cm at only 13,700kg!!

Impact Tests

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:

  • ​Steel wheels have excessive deformation and air loss
  • Cast aluminium wheels break
  • Alcoa® Wheels pass successfully!!

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.

Appearance

Aloca® Wheels stand out from others due to their superior and timeless design.

The Dura-Bright® EVO patented treatment keeps Dura-Bright ® wheels bright and shiny without polishing. The treatment penetrates the the aluminium making it an integral part to the wheel. This means it does not chip, crack or peel away link other conventional coatings.

Wheel Styles include:
