What raw materials are available for car wheels? Which one is better?


Many partners in the daily life, used to call the wheel hub "steel rim", "steel basin", so in our minds, the wheel hub as if it is the ironclad steel materials, we often receive some customer calls, open the door to steel basin ....

  Many partners in the daily life, used to call the wheel hub "steel rim", "steel basin", so in our minds, the wheel hub as if it is the ironclad steel materials, we often receive some customer calls, open the door to steel basin ....

  So this issue will talk to us about the several kinds of wheel materials that are dry on the market now!

  Steel wheels

  The term "steel tub" is really a household name because of the "mass base". When the earliest automobile industry entered China, due to the limitation of people's income level at that time, the cars that more common people could buy were indeed steel wheels (carbon steel, ductile iron, etc.). The first advantage of steel wheels is that they are made of ductile iron, ductile iron, etc.)

  The advantages of steel wheels are simple production process, relatively low cost, strong resistance to metal fatigue, strong bearing capacity, and so on, and even now many models of spare tires are still installed with steel wheels. However, the disadvantages of steel wheels are also more; for example, ugly appearance, heavy weight, poor heat dissipation, etc., and easy to rust, which really makes many car owners crazy.

  Alloy Wheels

  In recent years, more and more manufacturers factory wheels more inclined to the raw materials, modified car owners will also choose. Alloy wheels are divided into aluminum alloy wheels and magnesium alloy wheels, the advantages of this raw material is light weight (to help save fuel and improve handling), mechanical function is better, the production precision is also higher, strength, heat dissipation, shock absorption ability and other goals are also steel wheels can not be the same, and the appearance of the development space is also larger. Although the cost is higher, but over the years with mass production and process sophistication, the price has been completely in the range of the people can accept.

  Carbon fiber composite wheels

  The name is a little long and sounds expensive, it is not an illusion, this kind of material wheels are indeed now prepared for the pursuit of extreme function and "high-grade sense" of car owners, due to the scientific research on composite materials in recent years, these materials are also used in the production of automotive wheels, they have light and strong, light and rigid, high temperature resistance They are light but strong, light but rigid, high temperature resistant, corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant, stable structure size, and can be formed in a large area ..... The "high-grade" advantages, but the wheels of this material really seems a bit extreme now, the price of a set of four can also buy a new high-grade car ...
