Alcoa® Wheels ride the LBF test, a requirement that truck makers always insist on. The LBF test is a biaxial stress test for truck wheels. When testing a rim’s durability, the actual driving conditions (rotation, bending and operating loading conditions) are taken into account. The European Wheelmaker Manufacturers Association (EUWA) states that the rims must withstand loads corresponding to 1.5 million kilometers.
