What Are the Benefits of Alloy Wheels?
Alloy wheels are more expensive than their steel-plated competitors, but the benefits of having them justify the high price tag. While steel wheels are acceptable for use on everyday roads, some drivers prefer the better alternative. Alloy wheels refer to any wheels made from a combination of aluminum and small traces of other metals. Aluminum combined with these other metals creates a supremely strong and lightweight wheel.
Alloy wheels are also favored for their aesthetic appeal, and they tend to increase the overall value of the car. Some alloy wheels are made for specific makes and models of cars, so it is imperative that shoppers buy a set of wheels that fits their cars. Customers who buy a set of alloy wheels must also learn to properly care for and maintain their investment. Drivers can find alloy wheels at specialty auto and tire stores or at online marketplaces
About Alloy Wheels
Alloy wheels are a “step up” from typical steel-plated wheels. Steel wheels are favored because they are tough to damage and are inexpensive, but they are also heavy and clunky looking. Alloy wheels, alternatively, are both better looking and better performing wheels. They consist of aluminum alloys that are created when small amounts of other sturdy metals are blended with aluminum. Magnesium is one metal that should be avoided when it comes to alloy wheels, however, because it is frail and has a tendency to crack under normal wear and tear.
Aluminum is a lightweight metal, but when it is strengthened and reinforced by other metals, the end result is a wheel that is hailed for its performance and appeal. Alloy wheels are standard in the racing industry, and they are becoming increasingly popular on other types of vehicles. Many high-end vehicle models come factory equipped with alloy wheels, and there are plenty of aftermarket wheels available for nearly every make and model.
Benefits of Alloy Wheels
Alloy wheels may have gotten their start in racing, but more and more people are putting them on their everyday cars. Most people purchase a set of alloy wheels because they enhance the appearance of their vehicles, but there are actually many other benefits to having them on a car. They weigh significantly less than their steel-plated competitors, while being incredibly durable. Adding a set of alloy wheels to any car increases the overall value of the car. Depending on the make and model of the car, some alloy wheels can be fitted to give the car more brake clearance. Some experts claim alloy wheels also increase the gas mileage and handling and performance of the vehicle.
It is no secret that alloy wheels look significantly better than steel wheels and hubcaps. In fact, many people buy alloy wheels based on aesthetics alone. Alloy wheels are sold in all the standard sizes, and the selection is large and impressive. For cars with common bolt patterns, such as Hondas and Volkswagens, it is easy to find a set of alloy wheels in sizes from 13 inches all the way up to 18 inches. Alloy wheels are sold with a variety of finishes, such as chrome, painted, and polished. Some companies even allow buyers to customize their wheels, but these deals typically come with high price tags.
Aluminum is the key material that makes alloy wheels so lightweight. Wheels are classified as unsprung weight, which means weight that is not supported by the car’s suspension. Unsprung weight makes the vehicle vulnerable to shock transmission. Alloy wheels decrease the unsprung weight, and because of this lower weight, there is an increase in the car’s handling, particularly in the steering precision. A lighter wheel also makes it easier for the car to accelerate, and this can give drivers a small increase in gas mileage.
Increased Brake Clearance
Shoppers should see if there is a set of alloy wheels that allows for more brake clearance for their vehicles because this increases their brake performance. With more break clearance, the effort to push the brake pedal is reduced, and this gives drivers better control over the deceleration of their vehicles. Not all car and wheel combinations offer this feature, but shoppers can research if there are compatible sets that offer this before making a purchase.
The aluminum mixed with other metals makes alloy wheels stronger than typical steel wheels, and the unprecedented strength of alloy wheels leads to greater control and precision steering. Alloy wheels disperse heat better, and this decreases cracking and bending. Better dispersion also translates to more efficient braking. Additionally, many alloy wheels have spokes designed to let air flow freely around the rest of the tire, and this helps cool the brakes.
Increased Vehicle Value
Fitting a car for alloy wheels is a considerable upgrade. At the very least, it makes the car easier to sell, and at best, it increases the resale value of the car, especially if the car is already in good condition. More drivers are starting to recognize the benefits of having alloy wheels, whether it is for their looks or their performance enhancing qualities, and with the addition of aftermarket alloy wheels, resellers can often sell a car for a very decent profit.
Caring for Alloy Wheels
Because alloy wheels are such a significant investment, owners should take the time to properly clean and maintain the wheels on a regular basis. There are plenty of alloy wheel cleaning agents on the market. Some cleaners are sold individually, while others are sold in kits with multiple sprays, waxes, and sponges. Alloy wheel brushes are also available to help owners remove grit from the road.
No matter which cleaner brand buyers choose, they should make sure all the components are non-abrasive. Some drivers go the extra mile and coat the wheels with high-quality car polish before having the wheels fitted. The polish helps keep brake dust, grime, and salt from damaging the wheels. Drivers who do not opt for special cleaners should wash their alloy wheels often with warm, soapy water, and never use buffers, steel wool pads, or other items that could damage the wheels.
