Alcoa launches Dura-Black heavy-duty truck, trailer wheels


Alcoa has launched the new Dura-Black line of wheels for heavy-duty trucks and trailers.

According to the company, the new line of wheels offer the same advantages as all lightweight Alcoa forged aluminum wheels, making them lighter and stronger than steel wheels to improve payload and fuel efficiency while increasing resale value over the life of the vehicle, now with an alternative styling option known as “Menacing Matte Black.”

“We listened to the market and assembled a team to design, develop and test this new wheel in the lab and out in the field with fleet customers to ensure they’d stand strong,” said Merrick Murphy, president of Arconic Wheel and Transportation Products. “Alcoa Dura-Black Wheels meet or exceed OEM testing that’s been expanded to match both the durability and appearance requirements of this wheel.”

Alcoa Dura-Black Wheels are available in four sizes:

  • 22.5” x 8.25” – ULTRABLK – 40 lbs.
  • 22.5” x 9.00” – 89U64BLK – 48 lbs.
  • 24.5” x 8.25” – 98U63BLK – 51 lbs.
  • 22.5” x 12.25” – 82462BLK – 66 lbs.

The new wheels are available now.
