Race Car Technology
Steel wheels were the industry standard for years. However, despite metal’s unmatched durability, its weight compromised speed. Race car drivers were particularly affected by this, and began using magnesium instead – hence the term ‘Mags’. Nowadays we use aluminum alloys, but the name “mag” sticks and refers to all die-cast wheels regardless of their metal.
How Alloy Wheels Improve Your Vehicle’s Performance
Today, alloys are popular because they’re light, reasonably strong and are ideal for everyday road users. In fact, the benefits of fitting your car with mag wheels are extensive and provide long term value that saves you money. Enjoy advantages, such as:
- Decreased Unsprung Mass – Lighter wheels mean more speed, greater fuel economy, improved suspension, finer handling and better grip.
- Heat Regulating Designs – The spoke pattern leaves open gaps in mag designs which regulate the airflow to your brakes. When these are quickly cooled, they work better and last longer.
- More Tyre Options – Mag wheels provide a lighter, more stable base for bigger and wider tyres.
