Alcoa Launches Three New Wheel Lines
Alcoa Automotive Wheels is expanding its aftermarket catalogue to include three new wheel lines for full size trucks. The aluminium forged wheel pioneer is now offering Discovery Series, Revolver Series and Xtreme Series for current and late model full size trucks, including Chevrolet and GMC 2500/3500, Dodge 2500/3500 and Ford F-250/350. Each wheel is offered in 20×9, 8-lug fitments with a Dura-Bright technology surface option. This is the first time the patented Dura-Bright anti dirt, brake dust and road grime treatment has been made available on aftermarket products.
“Dura-Bright technology has been recognised for its ease of maintenance benefits in the commercial vehicle and heavy truck segments for many years and more recently with leading Global automotive OEMs. We are now able to offer this patented innovation for the first time directly to owners of full size trucks,” stated Steve Carlson, Director-Global Marketing, Alcoa Automotive Wheels.
The Discovery Series features a rounded spoke design to compliment the appearance of full size trucks used to tow recreational vehicles, including large boats and RVs. Revolver Series, with a split-spoke design, was developed for full size truck owners who are looking for a forged aluminium wheel to compliment the other appearance upgrades on their trucks. The Xtreme Series, says Alcoa Automotive Wheels, is ideal for full size truck owners looking for an aggressive wheel appearance for rugged use. All three wheels feature a deep lip to further accentuate the strong machine detailing on each wheel.
Designed, engineered and tested for full size trucks, Discovery Series, Revolver Series and Xtreme Series wheels are forged from one piece of 6061-T6 aluminium for increased durability and strength while reducing overall wheel weight for better suspension response and greater fuel economy.
Each wheel delivers as a kit supplied with an Alcoa centre cap and matching lug nuts. Alcoa offers a lifetime limited structural warranty on each wheel. A three-year warranty is provided on the chrome finish. Dura-Bright technology surface treatment also carries a three-year warranty.
