Kenworth has added Alcoa‘s new Dura-Black Wheels as an option for its heavy and medium-duty conventional truck models.
Alcoa says its Dura-Black wheels, like its other lightweight forged aluminum wheels, are lighter and stronger than steel wheels, helping to improve payload and fuel efficiency.
Both sides of the wheels are treated for flexibility of mounting in steer or drive position. The two-tone rim flange and mounting surface provide a premium appearance and enhanced protection during mounting and while in use.
Each wheel rim flange and mounting surface appears bright, in contrast to the wheel’s matte blackface. The wheels also feature a color-matched valve stem and Alcoa one-piece hub cover system, and a precision laser-etched logo.
Alcoa Dura-Black Wheels are available in common sizes, including 22.5 inches by 8.25, 9 and 12.25 inches, and 24.5 x 8.25 inches.
