I'm considering aluminum wheels for our Trek it is on a W20/2006 chassis. Does anyone know the correct bolt circle, bolt hole diameter, backspace, offset. I have tried Workhorse with no satisfaction. Thank you,

maybe call another workhorse dealer. don't know why a wh dealer couldn't help you getting the information. or did you try where you want to buy your new wheels? i tried a search but only came up with recalls.

UCEG, DriVer,

I have called and e-mailed workhorse dealers and have not received responses. I did receive one guess as to the price at $1400 a wheel which I think is way out of line, they also wanted me to drive the 100 miles so they could see it. I have also called Alcoa and was asked the questions I have asked. I also e-mailed Workhorse and received no information. Thank you for your responses. I'm looking for the information so I can be half intelligent while shopping.

A long time ago, in a land far far away, I attended the first Workhorse Owners Rally in Indiana. One of the presenters was from Alcoa and gave a good talk on their wheels. I don't have a contact name or number but Ed Gray might have something.

On another note, why do manufacturers, distributors and retailers make it so difficult for us to spend our money? Here we have a gentleman willing to spend a good chunk of his hard earned money and the wheel maker, coach builder, chassis builder seem to have no clue as to how to help him. I'm amazed.

Thank you all for your help. I was sure that somewhere there was someone who had the information.

Paul,

We are trying to schedule Alcoa to do a seminar at the WCMC - West Rallies in Bakersfield, CA.,
March 9 - 12. If all plans well, Allison Transmissions will have a seminar as well. Hope to see you there.
