A matter of choice of the car wheels stumps a lot of the new motorists. The reason is the wide range of their varieties on the modern car market.
How not to get confused in such a variety?
The first thing you should know about the car wheels is that they can be steel (iron) and light-alloy.
The iron wheels are the most popular, because they have many advantages:
- Low price (they are much cheaper than their light-alloy competitors due to the fact that they’re made with the use of more complex technologies).
- Higher practicality (they don’t crack in case of damage they don’t, as the other representatives of their class. Though they crush, they can be restored).
- Higher road safety (yes, the choice of wheels also affects the safety. In accidents and crashes the iron wheels take the heat, protecting the steering and suspension).
