Even when you live in an area that’s warm year-round, you can still bet on one thing. And that’s late winter and early spring combining to create pothole season. Pothole season is such a problem in the snow belt that some dealerships sell tire and wheel insurance for their new vehicles.
While some people will claim steel wheels will bend more easily than alloy wheels, others will take the opposing stance. It doesn’t really matter what your wheels are made of; they’re still susceptible to damage if they come into contact with a curb or pothole with enough force.
Today, more cars come with alloy wheels than steel wheels. Alloy wheels are lighter, which often makes for better handling. While that’s an upside, alloy wheels are usually accompanied by low profile tires that don’t offer much protection against potholes, curbs, or bumps. The larger the diameter your alloy wheels have, the more vulnerable they are to being cracked. In addition to cracking, alloy wheels are susceptible to pitting.
Both alloy and steel wheels can suffer corrosion thanks to dirt, brake dust, moisture, road salt, and other things. If the corrosion isn’t checked quickly, it can spread to other parts of your vehicle, such as your studs and axles. If you notice corrosion on your wheels, make it a priority to have them repaired as quickly as possible to prevent further damage.
