Alcoa introduces 19.5-inch wheel

Dec. 11, 2002

Alcoa Wheel and Forged Products has introduced a new forged aluminum wheel in a 19.5x7.5-inch size.

The new wheels fit Dodge, General Motors and Ford 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton and one-ton single rear-wheel trucks. According to Alcoa, they offer the lowest weight/highest load-rating combination of any forged truck wheel in the industry.

The 35-pound, one-piece wheels carry a maximum load rating of 4,050 pounds at 110 psi. "These features make the new Alcoa 19.5-inch wheels tough enough for towing a trailer, hauling a heavy load or riding rough terrain off-road," says the company, a subsidiary of Alcoa Inc.

The new wheels feature classic round hand-hole styling.
