Alloy wheels are automobile wheels which are made from an alloy of aluminium or magnesium metals or sometimes a mixture of both. Alloy wheels differ from normal steel wheels because of their lighter weight, which improves the steering and the speed of the car. Alloy wheels will reduce the unstrung weight of a vehicle compared to one fitted with standard steel wheels. The benefit of reduced unstrung weight is more precise steering as well as a nominal reduction in fuel consumption. Alloy is an excellent conductor of heat, improving heat dissipation from the brakes, reducing the risk of brake failure under demanding driving conditions. At present four wheeler wheels are made of Aluminium Alloys. In this project a parametric model is designed for Alloy wheel used in four wheelers by collecting data from reverse engineering process from existing model. Design is evaluated by analysing the model by changing the design of rim styles to be strong and balanced. Its material should not deteriorate with weathering and corrosion.
