Alcoa Wheels, inventor and global leader in forged aluminium truck, trailer and bus wheels, today announced the commercial launch of the European model of the Ultra ONE wheel with MagnaForce alloy the lightest heavy duty truck wheel on the market. Production will begin in early 2017 at Alcoa’s state of the art facility in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.
“The new to Europe Ultra ONE wheel with the MagnaForce alloy is heavy duty without the ‘heavy,’” said Merrick Murphy, Global President, Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products, at the product’s unveiling in Hannover. “Like all Alcoa Wheels, it gives our customers the ability to carry more payload, more efficiently and spend less on maintenance – it’s a win-win-win.”
The new European Ultra ONE wheel with MagnaForce alloy design is compatible with tire pressure monitoring systems. The maximum load index has been increased from 4125 kg to 4250 kg. The unified rim horn allows for adhesive and clip-on weights. The Ultra ONE 22.5” x 9.00” wheel with MagnaForce alloy is 7.5 percent lighter than the Company’s current 22.5” x 9.00” wheel.
