Alloy wheels identify wheels which have been cast from an aluminum mixture .Aluminum is proffered because it is light and is good at heat dissipation. Additionally, aluminum alloys are made of fewer amounts of rigid metals which make the mixture more rigid and helpful in the propagation of the cracks. In the past, manufacturers fitted steel wheels to most cars; they chose steel because of its resilience to damage and they are much cheaper option wheels. The light weight of the steel wheel bestows the car with an improved speed and steering advantage. However, it should be noted that there are certain alloy wheels which may be heavier than the steel wheel of the same size.

Since alloy wheels are better at the conduction of heat, they boost heat dissipation that is coming from the brakes and this in turn minimizes the likelihood of break failure occurring especially in conditions that are very demanding. In passenger vehicles the alloy wheels do more than just give an edge in driving performance, they also serve a cosmetic purpose. The alloy wheel boasts of its intricate and shiny design and this therefore means that it does not require wheel covers or paint to improve its look. Steel wheel on the other hand needs to be painted or be covered with wheel covers made of plastic .In addition, the steel wheels are found in standardized sizes and this translates into a healthy completion amongst tyre vendors in such a way as to make the steel tyres cheaper and more available. The car’s reduction of weight when the alloy wheels are used means that there is also a reduction in the rotating mass on the end of the suspension components bringing about the steering ability and an improved breaking response. 

There are numerous numbers of alloy wheel polishers and cleaners in the market today; however the manufacturers of the alloy wheel recommend that the wheels require simple attention and care to maintain them. This involves rinsing grit and dirt off as they are bound to cause scratches to the wheel and finally wash using water and soap. Some manufactures advice that one should use quality specialist or car wheel wax to help brake dust and grime to be easily removed and to maintain the shine on the alloy wheels. Some of the disadvantages of the alloy wheels include the fact that they are more expensive than the steel wheels, they demand more when it comes to repairing them and they are susceptible to a galvanic corrosion which causes leakage in tires. The alloy wheels standout due to their outstanding performance in balancing. This is mainly due to the fact that balancing weights are attached at the center which is not the case in the steel wheels which are attached on the rim’s edge. This feature makes tyre removal not to interfere with the wheel balance. Alloy wheels come in two different types; forged and casted. Forged alloy wheels are way stronger and lighter than their casted counterparts but more expensive and are in most cases purchased by, sport or luxury owners vehicle owners and enthusiasts.
