Less tyre wear and increased life duration of brakes and suspension
Because Alcoa Wheels are forged and 100% CNC machined, they run truer and exhibit better tyre wear than a stamped and welded steel wheel. Aluminium is also 3x more conductive than steel! Aluminium is the material of choice for heat sinks in laptops and radiator fins for cars and trucks, helping to dissipate heat. And heat is the number one enemy to tyre life, braking performance and brake pad life.
Precision machining ensures that each wheel is perfectly round. This eliminates any run out in a turning wheel.
Thermal images of aluminium vs. steel in identical operation conditions show how aluminium Alcoa Wheels run up to 22°C cooler.
