Difference Between Alloy Wheels And Steel Wheels
The differences between aluminum alloy wheels and steel wheels are tremendous, these wheels do not only distinguish the way they look on your vehicle, but the rims and wheels can have a major impact on your vehicle’s performance and safety.
Alloy/ Aluminum Wheels:
So are alloy wheels all about looks, or is there a technical reason behind using alloys for your vehicle? Alloy wheels are light wheels with upgraded performance features. In extreme driving situations, alloy wheels are better able to diffuse the heat away from brake segments than their steel equivalents.
These light wheels also have a better ability to increase the steering accuracy and stable cornering.
Steel wheels are slightly cheaper than alloy wheels, mainly because of the variations in production techniques. Steel Wheels are heavier than alloy wheels and provide vehicles with a lower center of gravity. therefore considering the weight and strength, steel wheels are perfect for harsh road conditions be it in the snow or off-road over the mountainous region. Steel wheels are also more easily repaired than their counterpart alloys, as steel rims can often be hammered back into place when inclined. Whereas alloy wheels or rims tend to split or crack more easily under impact and are more fragile when compared to steel wheels.
