PURPOSE OF WHEELS?

By Admin on

WHEELS  

Wheels must be strong enough to support the vehicle and withstand the forces caused by normal operation. At the same time, they must be as light as possible, to help keep un-sprung weight to a minimum. Wheels can be made from cast aluminium alloy or magnesium alloy


Alloy wheels are popular because of their appearance and because they are lighter than similar steel wheels. Aluminium is a better conductor of heat, so alloy wheels can dissipate heat from brakes and tyres more effectively than steel ones. Most wheels have ventilation holes in the flange, so air can circulate to the brakes. Most passenger car wheels are of well, or drop-centre design. This design allows for tyre removal and fitting. The removal and fitting of tyres should be carried out according to manufactures instructions.
