Alcoa Wheel and Forged Products has extended the limited warranty on its Dura-Bright aluminum wheels for both the wheel and patented surface treatment in all commercial vehicle applications.

Dura-Bright wheels, which have a patented protective treatment that resists corrosion and enables them to be cleaned with a spray of soap and water, are now warranted for five years against corrosion, an extension on the previous warranty's two years.

Both the wheel and the Dura-Bright protection on heavy-duty trucks and truck trailers are warranted for five years (60 months from date of manufacture) against defects in materials, workmanship, and corrosion. Recreational vehicle and motorhome applications (19-5" and 22.5" sizes) are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for 120 months from the date of manufacture shown on the wheel.
