Forget steel – choose the forged
and you will save on every kilometre.
As an option stronger than steel, Alcoa Wheels is an investment for the future. Long-lasting wheels have both light weight and low maintenance costs – paying themselves back in just 1 to 3 years.
With forged aluminium you will lighten the total weight of your combination even up to hundreds kilos. This shows especially with chemical containers increasing the profitable payload significantly. With less than full-loads this difference in weight brings remarkable fuel savings over time: the attached savings chart helps you estimating the monetary saving with different combination vehicles. The total saving is roughly an average of the fuel saving brought by truck and trailer together (assumed consumption 40 l/100 km).
The comparison is based on the relative weight saving per truck/trailer. The best results are affected by regular maintenance and way of driving. In a city bus test performed in Scotland Alcoa Wheels has reached a fuel saving of even 1,7 % with a six-wheel bus.
With Alcoa Wheels you’ll carry lighter and earn more – with every ride.
