Alcoa announces M-Series wheel collection

Alcoa announced it has bolstered applications for medium duty truck segments, Classes 3-6, with the introduction of its M-Series line of wheels. 

Each wheel in the M-Series collection features the same benefits Alcoa forged aluminum wheels provide to heavy duty (Class 7 and 8) customers, but are now customized to fit medium duty applications. M-Series wheels resist corrosion to virtually eliminate wheel maintenance costs and maintain the clean bright look that fleets deserve.  At nearly half the weight of a steel wheel, Alcoa M-Series wheels improve fuel economy, reduce carbon emissions and are infinitely recyclable.   

"Alcoa is proud to now offer a full range of forged aluminum wheel options to truck Classes 3 through 8," said Steve Carlson, global sales manager, Alcoa forged specialty wheels. "M-Series aluminum wheels for medium duty applications are loaded with the same money-saving, environmentally friendly, good looking and productivity increasing advantages as any other Alcoa truck wheel—just in a smaller size." 

The M-Series line of wheels provides customers with brush and polish finish options. Select part numbers are also offered with Alcoa's patented Dura-Bright surface treatment option. Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels require no-polish and are the easy-maintenance way to bright, shiny wheels that will last. The Dura-Bright production process penetrates the forged aluminum, which holds the shine—even after hundreds of washes and thousands of miles. 

Since Dura-Bright wheels rinse easily with mild soap and water, they eliminate the need for caustic cleaning products, further protecting the environment and reducing maintenance costs. 

Alcoa's M-Series wheel collection is designed for straight trucks, cab-overs and low deck trailers in the towing, beverage, emergency, delivery, food processing, retail/wholesale, utility and refuse industries. Specifically the wheels are manufactured to fit Dodge, Ford, Freightliner, Fuso, General Motors, Hino, International, Isuzu, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Smith and Sprinter vehicle makes.
