How to Choose the Right Truck Wheels

There aren’t many options to choose from when it comes to truck wheels, for there are essentially two types: steel and cast aluminum alloy wheels. Despite the fact these are the only types to choose from as far as material makeup is concerned, it is very important to purchase the right set for your truck or SUV. To make the right choice, you’ll need to know more about steel and cast alloy wheels.

  Steel Wheels Cast Wheels
Material Heavy-Duty Steel Aluminum Alloy
Process Stamped construction provides better durability and a more consistent composition Low-pressure casting allows better metal flexibility
Durability Heavier and meatier steel provides excellent durability and a consistent composition Rust-resistant for a long-lasting shine, but can’t take a beating in off-road conditions
Performance Tough and heavy-duty wheels that can withstand extensive punishment Lightweight composition makes them a perfect choice for speed-tuned vehicles
Cost Inexpensive to manufacture and therefore the most cost-effective for consumers Come in a wide price range depending on size, style and brand.

 

  • Steel Wheels – Steel truck wheels are composed of heavy-duty steel and can handle a wide range of worksites and hardcore off-road activity.

Perks of Steel Wheels

Overall, steel truck wheels are marginally heavier than alloy cast wheels, have a heavy-duty construction and are highly durable. When you take a deeper look, you’ll know that they have:

  • Lasting Endurance – The uniform composition of steel truck wheels makes them less porous than cast alloy wheels. Steel by nature is more malleable than aluminum alloy, which enables this type of truck wheel to endure the toughest of elements, including sand, dirt, rocks and even brake depletion.
  • Uniform Composition – Steel truck wheels go through a stamped construction process, which allows for a consistent, well-proportioned composition that offsets the probability of wobbling while enhancing the wheels’ structural integrity.
  • High Durability – Steel truck wheels’ durability stems from their stamped construction and heavy steel makeup. These wheels have a uniform composition, which lessens wobbling considerably.

Perks of Cast Alloy Wheels

In a nutshell, cast alloy truck wheels are lightweight, rust resistant and the ideal solution for those people who have a need for speed. They also offer:

  • Porous Makeup – Aluminum alloy wheels are more porous than steel wheels, which allows more air to flow through the wheels to cool the brakes.
  • Low-Pressure Casting – Cast alloy wheels undergo a low-pressure casting process to allow for enhanced malleability, which enables them to be more flexible from a metallurgic standpoint.
  • Brilliant Shine – Cast aluminum alloy wheels tend to be extremely resistant to rust, which makes polishing and cleaning them highly effective.
