Alcoa forged aluminum wheels were chosen because of their styling, design and strength. While style and design are crucial in any new auto show introduction, Alcoa Wheel Products supplies premium wheels with quality engineering that is more than skin deep. Alcoa wheels shown at NAIAS are forged from one piece of aluminum, which increases the strength of the wheel. Alcoa one-piece forged aluminum wheels eliminate the welds that create weak points in the wheel structure. In fact, Alcoa forged aluminum wheels have been proven more than 400% stronger than steel wheels in crush tests. In addition, Alcoa forged aluminum wheels are precision machined which allows for a smoother and truer ride.

'Vehicle manufacturers enjoy Alcoa's quick to market manufacturing flexibility because it allows for easier vehicle customization, which today's consumers want,' stated Doug Dietrich, Vice President and General Manager, Alcoa Wheel Products. 'NAIAS is the most significant auto show in the world and we are proud that our customers selected our wheels for their product, and the show.'
