Why Alcoa® Wheels?

The strongest wheels help you reach your destination

Steel wheels start to deform already at 13 600 kg

Impact test results/Japanese JWL test simulates a vehicle hitting a high curb at a speed of 50 km/h. A 910 kg weight is dropped onto the tyre and wheel assembly:

Steel wheels show excessive rim deformation and air loss
Alcoa® Wheels pass the test successfully

Lighter weight helps you make a profit

Up to 51% saving per wheel, depending on the wheel size

204 kg weight saving per 2-axle truck/3-axle trailer combination

Longer lifespan = lower costs

Aluminium is 3 times more conductive than steel and dissipates heat better, resulting in:

Less tyre wear

Increased life duration of brakes and suspension

Cleaner, greener and cheaper transport

Aluminium is 100% recyclable

Fuel efficiency: Alcoa® Wheels were fitted on a number of hybrid buses. The essential parameters were systematically measured and compared with buses fitted on steel wheels.
Over the period of 6 to 7 months fuel savings of up to 1% on the hybrid buses with Alcoa® Wheels have been reported.

CO2 reduction – Alcoa® Wheels bring down the carbon footprint of buses and commercial vehicles: Replacing 12 steel wheels with Alcoa® Wheels on a 2-axle truck and 3-axle trailer brings down CO2 emissions by 4 tons over the lifetime of truck (2×5 years) and trailer (10 years) and 1 300 000 km
