Ford Motor Co will now offer a new line of 20-inch Alcoa wheels as Genuine Ford Accessories for Super Duty trucks.

Referred to as ‘Super Duty Dubs’, customers may now choose from five styles of the strong, hot-forged aluminium wheels - from a flared six-spoke to a wide five-spoke design. Each is engineered to meet Ford specifications for durability and vehicle dynamics standards. These wheels are now included as a Genuine Ford Accessory by the US car manufacturer.

Ford introduced these Alcoa Forged branded Super Duty Dubs in November at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association show in Las Vegas.

'Alcoa 20-inch wheels match Ford super duty strength,' says Kevin Kramer, President of Alcoa Wheel Products. 'Each Alcoa wheel is hot-forged and fully machined from a single aluminium billet, allowing maximum payload and uncompromised towing rating.'
