Alcoa Dura-Black Wheels hit the heavy-duty truck and trailer market in Menacing Matte Black. 

Alcoa Dura-Black Wheels offer the same advantages as all lightweight Alcoa forged aluminum wheels, making them lighter and stronger than steel wheels to improve payload and fuel efficiency while increasing resale value over the life of the vehicle.

Beyond the Menacing Matte Black surface, each wheel rim flange and mounting surface appears bright, and in contrast to the matte black face of the wheel. The bright rim flange provides increased protection during tire mounting and while in use out on the road.  The bright disc face mounting surface provides protection when mounting and while in use on the rig. 

Each Alcoa Dura-Black Wheel is treated on both sides for flexibility of mounting in steer or drive position making ordering and install both easy.  Wheels are also supplied with high-quality, color-matched components including a black valve stem, and a precision, laser-etched logo. 

Color-matched Alcoa One-Piece Hub Cover Systems, specifically designed for Alcoa Dura-Black™ Wheels in steer and drive positions, complete the look.
