Rims are critical components of your vehicle wheel. The wheel is a device that enables efficient movement of an object across a surface where there is a force pressing the object to the surface. There are so many kinds of wheels are created from the ancient age for the today's world there are two kinds of wheels mostly used. In the present every vehicle was designed with alloy wheels which are more efficient than spokes wheels. In this project we designed the rim from the existing dimensions by modeling software. There are the models are prepared in this project one is actual one which is used in normal/regular vehicles, second one is modified one which is used in latest vehicles and the last one is the modification of latest rim. The three rims are analyzed in Ansys by using 4 different materials which are Al alloy which is a regular material and another three are Mg alloy, Zn alloy & Steel alloy. The results were compared and the best material with best model was proposed to the company.
