The wheels are a crucial part of the car. Choosing the right wheels for a vehicle is important; they play a big part in how well the car handles on the road, affecting the performance and general efficiency of the car.
The steel wheel set is a set of four durable steel wheels and the perfect replacement set of wheels for your car. A steel wheel is composed of a solid inner which is welded on to an outer rim. The steel wheel set is a popular choice because they are strong and built to last. This makes the steel wheel set more attractive to many car owners than an alloy wheel, because, although lighter, alloy is not as strong as steel and alloy wheels are more expensive to buy than steel ones. Being heavier, steel wheels don't perform as well as alloy wheels in terms of fuel efficiency and acceleration. A car with steel wheels tends to be less sprightly, but the heavy weight can help in certain driving conditions, such as ice and snow, making the car easier to handle on the road.
It is important that you get the correct size steel wheels for the make and model of your car. The diameter of the wheel rim can range from 13-20" and the width of the wheel rim ranges from 4-14". The bigger the wheel, the heavier the weight. It is crucial that you do not exceed the load capacity for your car, so it is critical that the weight of the wheels you fit doesn't send your load capacity over the safe limit. The steel wheel set will have the load capacity printed clearly on them to enable you to be certain you do not exceed the overall load capacity for your car. If the steel wheels you fit on your car have a width that is too small for the car, the overall performance and handling will be affected and it could cause damage to the tyre and wheel. Steel wheels come in a variety of finishes to suit individual tastes, and can be painted, chromed, polished or machined. Steel wheels come in a variety of bolt patterns also, which is another consideration when replacing a steel wheel on your car.
The steel wheel set are solid and strong and therefore difficult to bend or crack so the steel wheel set tends to receive less damage from knocks and bumps than an alloy wheel might. Avoiding the kerb when parking, however, is always advisable; The majority of wheel damage, be it alloy or steel, is caused by bashing and scraping the wheel rim on the kerb. Bad road surfaces, such as pot holes, can also be the culprit when it comes to damaging the steel wheel set. In addition to possible dents and scratches, when steel comes into contact with water it will rust. It is inevitable, therefore, that over time the steel wheel set will corrode. Due to the amount of wear and tear a wheel receives on the road, from adverse weather and debris such as stones, mud and water, as well as being prone to damage from dents, knocks and scratches, you will at some point need to buy a new set of steel wheels for your car. Make sure the steel wheels you buy are the right size for both the tyre and the car (using the wrong size wheel and tyre can cause damage to the car). By buying the steel wheel set you can be sure of a set of steel wheels that will be compatible with the make and model of your car.
