Based on that success, DaimlerChrysler has tapped ArvinMeritor for additional steel-wheel business for the next-generation Dodge Ram 2500. AISI says that the ArvinMeritor contract reflects a surge in popularity of styled steel wheels by the public and vehicle manufacturers, with more than 8 million of the wheels on the road today compared to 600,000 only five years ago.
