“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.”
Alcoa Ultra wheels are five pounds lighter than previous products (22.5″ x 8.25″) and offer the same load rating of 14,600 pounds. Additionally, the new wheels are compatible with air-disc brakes, which are standard on the steering axles of all Class 8 Peterbilts.
