Difference Between Steel Wheel And Alloy Wheel
Jan 31, 2018

The main advantages of 1 steel wheels are simple manufacturing process, relatively low cost, strong resistance to metal fatigue. But the disadvantages are also obvious, such as large weight, inertia resistance, heat dissipation and so on.

2 Alloy hub Its advantages are light weight, high manufacturing precision, strength, small inertia resistance, strong heat dissipation, good visual effect, etc., the disadvantage is the complex manufacturing process, high cost.

Alloy wheel with aluminum as the basic material, appropriate addition of manganese, magnesium, chromium, titanium and other metal elements. Compared with steel wheels, alloy wheels have the characteristics of energy saving, safety and comfort, so more and more cars have already listed alloy wheels as standard configuration. Now let's look at the three properties of the alloy wheels.

1 Energy-saving: alloy wheel weight light, high manufacturing precision, in the high-speed rotation of small deformation, inertia resistance is small, is conducive to improving the car's straight-line performance, reduce tire rolling resistance, thereby reducing fuel consumption.

2 Safety: The thermal conductivity of aluminum alloy is three times times of steel, the heat dissipation effect is very good, thereby enhancing the braking performance, improve the service life of tires and brake discs, and effectively protect the safe driving of automobiles.

3 comfort: The car with alloy wheels is generally used to cushion and shock absorbing performance than ordinary tires flat tires, so that the car on uneven roads or high-speed driving, comfort greatly improved.
