Alcoa launches four new wheels at truck show

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Alcoa Wheels unveiled four new wheels that will be available for purchase March 15 – the Sprinter 2500, the Ford Transit single and dual wheel and GM 3500/4500.

Alcoa made the announcement during the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Ind. March 2, expanding its M-Series collection.

“As the leader in forged aluminum solutions, we have a longstanding history providing valuable medium duty wheels to the marketplace,” said Tim Myers, president, 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.”

Alcoa said the new wheels are lightweight and high-performance, with each providing the same benefits of the company’s forged aluminum wheels for heavy-duty trucks, but customized to fit medium-duty, Class 2-6 vehicles.

The Sprinter 2500 measures 16.5” x 6” and weights in at 21 pounds, providing fuel savings, freight efficiency and ease of maintenance.

The Ford Transit wheel is 16.5” x 6.5” for the single and 16.5” x 6” for the dual wheel, weighing 21 and 18 pounds respectively.

The GM 3500/4500 forged aluminum wheel weights 19 pounds and measures 16.5” x 6”.
