Alcoa wheels

Hi: I've been a member before, couldn't remember my password and I'd changed service carriers. Just easier to re-register. Anyway, we own a 1997 Airstream Land Yacht 35' DP. We're looking at purchasing a set of Alcoa aluminum wheels, 19.5". Anyone have any pros or cons about these wheels? Thanks.

That's right more to polish!

We have them on ours, the past owner put them on, he wanted them to match the tv. We have not had any problems with them. Folks always comment on them. Hard to keep shiny clean though.

Alcoa wheels are the ones you see on 95% of tractor trailers that run aluminum wheels.They have been around for years.You should have no problem with them.They also make prepolished/clearcoated wheels,just cann't remember what they call 'em."Durabrite" I think it was...Brian

October 9, 2007 Alcoa Gets Army Pact Worth $31.7 Million

Alcoa Inc. won a contract valued at $31.7 million to supply aluminum armored plate for Army vehicles designed to resist improvised explosive devices. More than 1 million pounds of metal will be delivered per month during the contract, with shipments starting in November and running through June 2008, Alcoa said yesterday. Alcoa will supply the plate for use in a new armored vehicle designed to survive ambush and explosive attacks. The material will be produced at a factory in Davenport, Iowa, and mostly sent to Army facilities in Rock Island, Ill.
