The requirements for improved stiffness, reliability, fatigue life and increased efficiency involves challenges of developing innovative design solutions. The present work mainly focus on the design of car alloy wheel, where the analytical and FEM analysis approach was implemented to analyze baseline design. Initially static analysis was performed to obtain total deformation, strain and the stress of car alloy wheel. Three Dimensional model was created using CATIA while it was discretized using ANSYS to perform post processing analysis for obtaining expected solution. The res ults were obtained through linear static analysis in terms of Total deformation, Minimum principal stress, Max Principal stress on 4 arms wheel and later dynamic analysis (modal analysis) was been done to obtain different modes with different frequency fo r 4 arms wheel.
