Types and differences of wheels

2023-07-31


steel wheel
is made of rim and spoke welded and painted. It is equipped with inner tube tire. When assembling tire, elastic retaining ring (or retaining ring and lock ring) is assembled at the same time. At present, it is widely used in medium and low-grade buses, light and heavy trucks (especially dump trucks). The cross-sectional shape of the rim (including the retaining ring) is rolled by a steel mill. The rim is mainly processed by coiling, welding (butt welding) and other processes, of which butt welding is the key process; the spokes were originally stamped and formed. At present, they are mainly processed by spinning, blanking, machining and other processes, of which spinning is the key process. The advantages of this product are that the process is relatively simple, the product has a strong carrying capacity, it is suitable for harsh working environments, and it is convenient for assembly, disassembly and maintenance; the disadvantage is that the quality is heavy, long-term operation is prone to puncture accidents, and the retaining ring is in danger of falling off. At present, the technology of domestic production enterprises is mature and the production capacity is sufficient.



Steel wheel
is made of steel spokes and rims welded and painted, and is equipped with inner tires. It is currently widely used in low-and medium-end cars, light and mini cars, vans, RVs, trailers and other models, sometimes as spare tires for mid-range cars. At present, the processes used in the rim are rolling, welding, rolling, etc.; the main process of the spoke is stamping. Welding and rolling are the key processes. Compared with the aluminum alloy wheel of the same specification, the product has the advantage of less possibility of fracture when impacted and lower. The appearance is diverse and beautiful, the weight is lighter than the steel wheels of the same specification, and the heat dissipation performance is good; the shortcomings are limited by the process, and its appearance structure is single.



tubeless steel wheel
is made of rim and spoke welded and coated, and is matched with tubeless tires. At present, it is widely used in medium and high-grade buses and medium and heavy trucks (especially tractors and trailers). Compared with the traditional steel wheel, it has the characteristics of light weight, safety, comfort and so on. The disadvantage is that the anti-overload ability is poor, the use conditions are higher, and the removal of tires requires special equipment. The rim is mainly processed by rolling, welding (butt welding), rolling and other processes, in which butt welding and rolling are the key processes; spokes are mainly processed by spinning, blanking, machining and other processes, in which the key process of spinning. At present, the technology of domestic production enterprises is mature and the production capacity is sufficient.



Aluminum alloy wheel
is cast from aluminum alloy and is equipped with inner tube tires. It is currently widely used in cars, off-road vehicles, vans and other vehicles. At present, the commonly used processes are: low die casting (or gravity), heat treatment, flaw detection, machining, coating, etc. Some enterprises use casting and spinning or forging and spinning molding methods. Casting is the key process. The advantages of this product are diverse and beautiful appearance, lighter weight than steel wheels of the same specification, and good heat dissipation performance; the disadvantage is that the price is higher than that of steel wheels.
