Alcoa has announced that it has expanded its collection of M-Series aluminum wheels for medium-duty commercial vehicles by adding products designed for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit and GM 3500/4500. The wheels were unveiled at the Work Truck Show 2016, and each will be available for order in North America on March 15, 2016.
“As the leader in forged aluminum solutions, we have a longstanding history providing valuable medium duty wheels to the marketplace,” said Tim Myers, president of Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products. “Our M-Series medium duty wheels offer significant advantages to fleets and business owners and we plan to continue prioritizing this industry as we innovate.”
According to Alcoa, each forged aluminum wheel in its M-Series collection is built to reduce maintenance costs, including the elimination of refurbishment and repainting required by steel wheels, while maintaining the clean, bright look that fleets appreciate and drivers love. The single-piece forged aluminum construction provides a running wheel that offers a smooth ride, extends tire life and lowers operational costs.
