Some riders will mention how steel wheels are lighter than aluminum alloy wheels? According to traditional thinking, steel is very heavy, and aluminum alloys are very light. Because the hardness of the steel is 7.9, and the hardness of the aluminum alloy is 2.7, the thickness of the aluminum alloy is at least three times thicker than the steel wheel in order to achieve the safety standard strength! Comparing the 16-inch wheels, the steel wheels are very thin, only about 2 mm thick, and the thickness of the aluminum alloy wheels is about 10 mm. Also for 16-inch wheels, the steel hub weighs 6.5 kg and the aluminum alloy hub weighs 8.3 kg. Therefore, the steel wheel hub is lighter than the aluminum alloy wheel hub.

In winter, snow tires are generally used for steel wheels. Because the steel wheels are lighter, they are more convenient to use, and the steel wheels are more resistant to the corrosion of snow removers.
