Alcoa announced Wednesday at the Association for the Work Truck Industry Work Truck Show in Indianapolis the expansion of its M-Series aluminum wheels for medium-duty commercial vehicles by adding products designed for the Sprinter, Ford Transit and GM 3500/4500.
The single-piece forged aluminum construction provides a running wheel that offers a smooth ride, extends tire life and lowers operational costs at nearly half the weight of a steel wheel, according to Tim Myers, president, Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products.
