Leading brand of aluminium wheels
We advanced the transportation industry with the first forged aluminium wheel in 1948, and have been reinventing it ever since.
Alcoa® Wheels is a brand and product of the Arconic Wheel and Transportation Products business unit, which is part of Arconic Inc. (formerly known as Alcoa Inc.).
