Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products has introduced a new M-Series aluminum wheel designed for the Sprinter 3500 chassis. According to the company, the wheel is lightweight and durable while improving styling options to RV, shuttle, van and work truck upfitters.

The 16 x 5.5 J type wheel has 6 elongated hand holes for optimal venting and heat dissipation, and weighs about 12 lbs. less than a steel wheel with an identical load rating of 2337 lbs., Alcoa said.

According to Alcoa, the wheel is available in both brushed and polished finishes, and is offered with an accessories package that features front and rear axle covers with lug nut covers designed to fit over OE lug nuts.
