Steel vs Alloy

Types of custom wheels

One of the most important attributes of a wheel is the material it’s made of. The material will determine the price, the weight, and the durability of your new wheels.

Steel wheels

Steel Wheels are the least expensive wheel option, they are heavier wheels that provide vehicles with a lower center of gravity. Steel wheels are perfect for harsh road conditions in the snow or off-road over rugged terrain, but lack other performance capabilities because of the added weight.

PROS:

  • Cheapest and most durable
  • Excellent in Winter conditions
  • Ideal for heavy, hardworking vehicles

CONS:

  • Can put strain on suspension
  • Weight makes acceleration more difficult
  • Not the most aesthetically pleasing

PROS:

  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Lightweight, optimal acceleration and handling
  • Stylish and trendy designs

CONS:

  • Can crack more easily than steel
  • More expensive

Manufacturing

Wheel manufacturing processes

Steel wheels

These are typically pressed from sheet metal then welded together. This is part of why steel wheels are so limited in design. The steel is then painted and hidden beneath wheel covers or hubcaps.

Cast wheels

Aluminum wheels are manufactured through a process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold. The shape of the wheel is formed through a process of gravity or pressure casting.

Machined wheels

The machining process combines casting, heating, spinning, and precise pressurization to fill a mold with molten aluminum and shape the wheel.

Forged wheels

The forging process takes a solid piece of aluminum and molds the wheel through high heat and extreme pressure. The result is a light, dense, and strong wheel.

Selecting the right wheels

The right set of wheels depends on vehicle characteristics and desired ride quality. When choosing wheels for your car, truck, or SUV, consider the following:

Size

Various wheel sizes and weights hold different performance characteristics. If you plan on upgrading your current wheel size, be sure to consider the maximum wheel size allowance on your vehicle.

Weight

Wheel weight impacts vehicle performance. Heavier wheels increase braking distance and reduce handling, while lighter wheels will

Terrain

Where do you drive most often? Wheels should be selected based on their primary function.
