What is an Alloy Wheel?

Let’s start with the basics. In short, an alloy wheel is self-explanatory: it’s a wheel that consists of numerous combined metals. Most commonly, these metals are aluminium or magnesium. Steel is also a common custom wheel material and, due to its mix of iron and carbon, it qualifies as an alloy.

Traditionally, however, the term ‘alloy wheels’ only applies to those derived from non-ferrous metals.

As such, most alloy wheels are corrosion and dust resistant. This gives them great longevity, meaning the chances of needing alloy wheel repair stay low. Of course, a proactive approach to maintenance and alloy wheel refurbishment (including the odd alloy wheel straightening here and there) also goes a long way in this regard.

The true popularity of alloy wheels lays in their pleasing aesthetics and customisable qualities. With diamond cutting options and an exhaustive range of powder coating combinations, you can truly express yourself while driving in and around the road.

Alloy wheels also have a light weight. This helps to reduce fuel consumption while aiding in other aspects of performance like improved acceleration, braking, handling and steering.

What are Steel Wheels?

While not a ‘true’ alloy wheel, steel wheels remain popular with motorists and across the country. Made solely from steel, these wheels have impressive strength. In fact, it’s almost impossible to crack them, making them a great option if you want to avoid alloy wheel repairs.

It is possible to bend and dent them however, but with a range of alloy wheel straightening techniques and machinery at our disposal, we can get them back to their former glory in no time. No matter your needs, we have the alloy wheel refurbishment service to cover you.

As an added benefit, steel wheels are cheaper than alloy wheels – but they are also heavier. This suits winter driving conditions on the roads, but can also increase fuel consumption.

If you like the idea of wheels with a customised touch and aesthetic appeal, including diamond cutting and powder coating options, you should note that steel wheels have less variety than alloys.
