Alloy wheels are made of either aluminum or magnesium. The chosen metal is combined with other elements to form the alloy, which is both stronger and lighter than a pure metal. This lightness improves the vehicle's grip on the road and improves gas mileage. Additionally, alloy wheels have improved heat conduction, which enhances the performance of the vehicle's brakes.

Aside from their performance, alloy wheels are commonly chosen for their appearance. They are shinier than their steel counterparts. However, they are often victim to galvanic corrosion. This can be prevented by sealing the alloy with paint or adding wheel covers. It is important to prevent galvanic corrosion, as it can cause tires to leak air.

As alloy wheels are more expensive to produce than steel wheels, they are not always standard on a vehicle. Luxury cars like the Maserati, Aston Martin, Lotus, Lamborghini and Ferrari come equipped with these wheels. MSW alloy wheels are often added on as an aftermarket purchase. O.Z.
