Alcoa introduces new lightweight aluminum wheel, new wheel technology

The new wheel is, at 39 lbs., the lightest aluminum wheel offered by Alcoa, and is available for all major truck OEMs.

Alcoa Wheels has introduced the next generation Alcoa Ultra One 22.5” x 8.25” wheel.

The new wheel is, at 39 lbs., the lightest aluminum wheel offered by Alcoa, and is available for all major truck OEMs.

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.

This wheel is in production now and, according to Alcoa, is either available for order or will be very soon depending on your truck OEM.

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.
