Steel wheels are known for their durability and low maintenance. Steel wheels are usually used to work as a winter solution as they are less likely to oxidize from the road salt and have a heavier weight. These types of wheels are also cost effective for a seasonal wheel and fit onto most basic model cars.
Alloy wheels are usually used to replace the original set of wheels that came with your vehicle. Alloy wheels are lighter in weight and are more customizable; giving you more options to style your vehicle.
