The wheel is also offered with Alcoa Wheels’ upgraded finishes, High Polish and Mirror Polish, and with Alcoa’s Dura-Bright and Dura-Black surface treatments.

The company has also introduced Alcoa Wheels Hub Bore Technology, which the company says reduces the hub-to-wheel contact area by up to 64% versus other aluminum wheels on the market, leaving less surface area for corrosion to form. Less corrosion, the company says, means:

  • Faster, easier and safer wheel removal encouraging time savings and enhanced technician work environments;
  • Increased productivity and overall job efficiency; and
  • Lowered total cost of ownership.
