For as long as anyone in the truck wheel industry can remember, there has always been a debate as to which is better—aluminum or steel wheels—and it’s an ongoing topic Doug, Dave, Mike and many other Alcoa Wheels experts discuss with fleets and OEMs regularly. The conversation always includes the differences between the different metals, the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as their respective manufacturing processes. In this episode, the guys get into it all and lay out once and for all which is the lightest, strongest, better looking, easiest to maintain and more fuel efficient to haul more payload and lower lifetime operating costs.
