Meet sustainability goals.

Lighter weight aluminum wheels allow for increased payloads or improved fuel efficiency. Reduced trips or using less fuel means reduced CO2. Plus, it’s recyclable. In fact, 73% of all aluminum produced since 1888 is still in use today.

The reinvention of the wheel

The best keep getting better.

We advanced the transportation industry with the first forged aluminum wheel in 1948, and have been reinventing it ever since.
