About Alcoa Wheels Arconic

Leading brand of aluminium wheels

 

We advanced the transportation industry with the first forged aluminium wheel in 1948, and have been reinventing it ever since.

Alcoa® Wheels is a brand and product of the Howmet Wheel Systems business unit, which is part of Howmet Aerospace Inc. (formerly known as Arconic Inc).
