About Alcoa forged aluminium wheels: Alcoa wheels are manufactured from a single block of high-strength corrosion resistant aluminium alloy. With a 8000 tons press the block is forged into a wheel shape. Once forged the wheels are heat-treated to maximize overall mechanical strengths. The Alcoa forging process aligns the grain flow of aluminium with the shape of the wheel, even in the critical area where disc and rim meet. This process results in wheels with unrivalled forged strength.
