AUDI A6 WILL OFFER SIMPLE-TO-CLEAN ALLOY WHEELS FROM ALCOA
Somebody needs to take this Alcoa technology and apply it to toilets. Imagine if toilets cleaned with water; and water only?
Dura-Bright, a registered trademark of Alcoa, will be applied to Audi A6 wheels in this the 60th anniversary year of Alcoa. Aiding resale value and personal pride levels, the Dura-Bright stuff will make dirty wheels with peeling lacquer a thing of the past, at least on Audi A6s.

Unsprung weight, oh Good Car Nation, is the arch-enemy of all vehicle dynamics engineers and the unknown enemy of girls across SoCal whose 17-year old boyfriend equipped his ’94 Civic with 20″ wheels and brakes to match.
