As with any product, the selection of materials for wheeled mobility products impacts both the manufacturer and the end user. Materials impact characteristics such as durability, strength, cost, appearance, design and manufacturing flexibility, and weight. Choosing the right accessories for your car could benefit from new technologies. Today, even with the excellent material improvements over previous product generations, there are still significant needs for materials.
But if you are thinking of need for speed there are three things you have to look out for as your car rolls along –
- Air resistance
- Axle friction
- Tire stickiness
Your wheels turn on axles. One of the biggest sources of friction is where the axles and wheel surfaces meet. It is important to make your axles as smooth as possible.
Imperfections in your wheels cause friction in many areas. Wheels can become unbalanced, wobble, or even cause more friction if they are not prepared correctly. Rims are one of the most important parts of a car and it plays an important role in the car’s movement.
You can find numbers of different type of car rims available in the market. The much used are chrome and alloy rims. The demand for chrome rims is very high and there are a variety of designs. Once it is realized that the prices are peanuts compared to what you are paying for your car, you will realize the potential it can add to the aesthetics.
For me, it is about a status symbol and also I am passionate about cars.
