Successful Dealer Staff August 7, 2014

AUWPeterbilt said Thursday the company will make Alcoa Ultra aluminum wheels – manufactured from a MagnaForce alloy – a factory-installed option for all Peterbilt heavy-duty trucks.

“This is a great new option for our customers in weight-conscious applications and other markets who want to run lighter and have confidence in the proven durability of Alcoa’s aluminum wheels,” says Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Director of Sales and Marketing. “The MagnaForce alloy reduces weight without sacrificing strength, and the new Ultra wheels feature the polished finish and styling customers love.”
