Alcoa has introduced its M-Series line of wheels for medium duty – Classes 3-6 – truck segments.
The M-Series collection features the same benefits Alcoa forged aluminum wheels provide the heavy duty segment but are now customized to fit medium duty applications. M-Series wheels resist corrosion, and 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,” Steve Carlson, Global Sales Manager, Alcoa Forged Specialty Wheels, says. “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 comes in brush and polish finish options and select part numbers are offered with Alcoa’s patented Dura-Bright urface treatment option, requiring no-polish.
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.
