Alcoa wheels Europe on show at Tip-Ex
Alcoa Wheel Products will be showing its forged aluminium wheels at Tip-Ex show (stand C7-8) between 10 and 12 June. The wheel maker recently added some 17.5” wheels to its portfolio including: a 17.5 x 6.75 10 hole low deck trailer wheel, available in mirror polished version; a 17.5 x 6.75 6 hole truck wheel for medium duty trucks. Alcoa reports that the latest sizes will be available in brushed and Dura-Bright finishes from April 2011 onwards.
Alcoa wheels are forged from one solid block of aluminium, resulting in the company granting a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty on its products. According to the firm, compared to steel wheels, Alcoa wheels are up to 47 per cent lighter and 4 times stronger.
