About Alcoa® Wheels

Header image of fire2

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.).
 
In 2016, Alcoa Inc. separated into two independent companies (Alcoa Corporation and Arconic Inc.), and Arconic has since licensed the mark Alcoa® for its wheels branded Alcoa® Wheels. For the European markets, Arconic produces these wheels in its manufacturing facility in Hungary.
