Alcoa Duea Bright Aluminum rims
 
Has anybody had any experience with installing Alcola Dura Bright aluminum rims on a Sprinter 3500 DRW RV?

I think that's what Airstream puts on the Interstates.

Lots of people with LTV Unity and Serenity RVs had Alcoa wheels installed as an option when their unit was delivered.

Alcoa Duea Bright Aluminum rims
 
I have Alcoa wheels on my Interstate based on the 3500 dually Sprinter. Mine are pre Dura-Bright so they have to be polished to look good. I understand the new Alcoa Dura-Bright finish is very durable. Wish I had it on my wheels.

FYI- Advanced RV also installs Alcoa wheels.

Sometime ago, our Alcoa wheels were shinny. They don't look as good now but still a great wheel for a Sprinter 3500. Unless things have changed, you can't put one on the inside in back due to wheel thickness and length of the studs. We have the OEM steel wheel inboard. We went up a tire size as well to an LTX 235/85. Great smooth ride but we also have full air suspension in the rear (no leaf springs) and Konis all around.

I believe the newer LTV dually's have an aluminum inside wheel, but it is not the shiny bright aluminum.

In any case, you probably want to buy the Borg solid stainless steel valve stems (comes in a kit) if you ever intend to install TPMS sensors.

Alcoa has actually redesigned their wheels to allow using two in dual positions. They have tried to keep up with changes made by Daimler Vans over the years. Here is a link to the relevant Alcoa bulletins. First two listed are about Sprinter 3500 wheels.
