About Alloy Wheels x1
An alloy is a combination of two elements, one being a metal, producing a metal with different properties, that is stronger; often more lightweight; efficient at heat conduction; easy to shape into different formations; and more resistant to rust than the more commonly used steel. These are reasons why alloy is a popular choice as the material for car wheels. Modern manufactured alloy wheels are usually made of an alloy of aluminum but can also be made of an alloy of magnesium or chrome.

Although more resistant to corrosion than steel wheels, the Volkswagen alloy wheel X1 is likely to eventually become susceptible to rust and is particularly given to galvanic corrosion, which can lead to problems with the tyres letting out air. Alloy wheels should be protected with a cover, paint or a sealant which will increase their resistance to corrosion and regular cleaning will help to increase their lifespan and look. However, due to the amount of wear and tear they receive on the road, from adverse weather and debris such as stones, mud, water etc. as well as being prone to receiving dents, knocks and scratches, they will eventually need replacing. When purchasing just one alloy wheel ensure it matches the other three wheels on your car, that it is the right size for both the tyre and your car (using the wrong size wheel and tyre can cause damage to the car) and that it is compatible with the make and model of your car.
