What is the function of wheels in an automobile?
A wheel on a car or truck is one of the essential parts of a vehicle. It produces a rotatory function and moves the car from one point to another. Since their invention in 3500 BC, car wheels have changed various designs, styles and structures. You have a range of options available to you.
What Types Of Wheels Should You Get?
STEEL VS ALLOY
|Most inexpensive||Excellent for fuel Economy|
|Excellent in winter conditions||Lightweight|
|Ideal for hardworking/heavy vehicles||More aesthetic/stylish|
CAST VS FORGED
These are made by pouring molten aluminum into a mold that’s shaped like the wheel. When it cools, it’s removed from the mold, and finishing touches are made. It can be trimmed, cleaned up and drilled out for mounting. The process is quick, which makes for less expensive production and a less expensive wheel for the buyer. They are more porous because of the curing process, so they’re more susceptible to cracks and other structural issues when they’re put up to extreme use. For normal driving conditions, that porosity isn’t something to worry about.
These start as a solid block of billet aluminum. This is shaped into the wheel form and pressurized for added strength before it’s machined out into the final wheel design. Forged wheels are significantly lighter and stronger than cast wheels, and the look can’t be matched with cast wheels. If you have a serious race car, they’re well worth the investment. For most people, it’s just a matter of aesthetics.
