What do the wheels and tires do for your car?
The wheels and tires are your vehicle’s connection to the road. This connection effects handling, ride comfort, braking and even fuel efficiency. If you care about looking good while driving down the street, your wheels and tires can also contribute greatly to the look and style of your ride.
Before we look at the mechanics involved, let’s look at the construction of the typical wheel and tire.
How are car wheels made?
The majority of wheels on cars and trucks are made from steel or aluminum (also known as alloy wheels). Steel wheels are typically finished off with a plastic hubcap to give the look of a custom alloy wheel. Alloy wheels are typically cast or forged and polished or powdercoated to give a shiny finish to the wheel. Some aluminum and steels wheels are finished off with a chrome finish to leave a bright reflective coating.
When it comes to cost, steel wheels lead the pack with the cheapest purchase price. Cast aluminum wheels are the next more costly option with forged and mag wheels leading the pack of the most expensive wheels out there. In general, the larger the wheel, the more it costs. A 15″ steel wheel may be $50 and a 22″ chrome plated forged alloy wheel may be as much as $600 per wheel!
