Alcoa updates commercial wheel guide

June 30, 2011

Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products has updated the 2011 Alcoa Commercial Vehicle Wheels Spec Data Guide (Spec Data Guide), its comprehensive product handbook. The Spec Data Guide features a complete product portfolio, including new LvL One wheel applications recently launched.

Users can refer to the Spec Data Guide for complete part catalog information, product names and finish details, as well as complete technical information for heavy duty, wide base, bus and medium duty wheels. It serves as a one-stop-shop to reference Alcoa commercial vehicle wheels.

The newly revised guide now utilizes color coding to enhance readability of the data fields. In addition, the Spec Data Guide includes a new sustainability component as it has been redesigned to decrease from a six-page document to just four pages. This reduction saves cost and paper, thus contributing to a positive environmental impact.

“Our customers must have a resource tool they find easy to use and effective in identifying their needs,” says Todd Hershberger, director of marketing – Americas, Alcoa Wheels. “We listened to feedback we received from the field to create our newly designed Commercial Vehicle Wheels Spec Data Guide, and look forward to continuing to serve our customers with value added solutions.”
