    Default Chrysler LLC's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) to Incorporate Alcoa Dura-Brigh Technology Wheels

    I am not sure but I think this is the same stuff Jay Leno used for his new Challenger.

    I would pay to keep from always cleaning my brake dust. I hope it works.

    Chrysler LLC's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) to Incorporate Alcoa Dura-Bright Technology Wheels to

    Posted October 22nd, 2008


    Alcoa Automotive Wheels, a division of Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products, announced today that it has been awarded platform placement of Dura-Bright® technology wheels with Chrysler LLC’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) engineering organization. Two new wheels within the Chrysler SRT family, including both Dodge and Jeep® platforms, will begin placement with the 2009 model year.
    “Our innovative Dura-Bright® technology has enjoyed commercial success for many years in the heavy duty truck market and more recently with leading Global automobile manufacturers. We are honored that Chrysler’s SRT organization has recognized that this wheel surface innovation can add value and product differentiation through easy to clean maintenance benefits extended to their new vehicle owners,” said Kevin Kramer, President, Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products.

    Chrysler’s SRT organization has selected the patented surface treatment for the standard 5-spoke wheel fitted to the Dodge Viper SRT10 coupe and roadster. Alcoa forged wheels treated with Dura-Bright® technology allow Viper owners to maintain their sports cars appearance with minimal maintenance effort. Vehicles fitted with aggressive brake packages, like the Dodge Viper SRT10, typically generate a high level of brake dust. Viper owners will now be able to maintain the appearance of their vehicle with less effort to keep their wheels cleaner with Dura-Bright® technology.

    Chrysler’s SRT organization has also selected Dura-Bright® technology for fitment on Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Owners will appreciate the exclusive wheel surface treatment to easily clean away brake dust, dirt and road grime whether they use the vehicle for on-road or off-road performance.

    Alcoa began supplying one-piece forged aluminum SRT wheels on the Dodge Viper SRT10 in 2002. The company has supplied wheels for all SRT8 fitments, including Chrysler 300C, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum and Jeep Grand Cherokee since 2004. 2009 will signal the first applications of Dura-Bright® technology to the Chrysler SRT organization. Look for “db” engraved on Dodge Viper SRT10 and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 wheels, to identify them as being specially treated with Alcoa’s patented Dura-Bright® technology.

    Along with the benefits of easy to clean Dura-Bright® technology, all SRT wheels by Alcoa are forged from one piece of aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum. The forging process aligns the grain of the metal producing a strong and durable wheel with light weight benefits to enhance vehicle performance and fuel economy. Forged aluminum wheels by Alcoa are typically twice as strong while reducing weight by over 20 percent as a comparable cast aluminum wheel.




    For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

    I would to see Alcoa make the prototype wheels of the 2006 Challenger, for those of us who dont prefer the current 20" SRT wheels. Come-on Alcoa I needs 20"s in the rear. [8D]

    Has there been any new news on the Dura Bright wheels? I have been looking for them ever since Leno mentioned them.
