Style, Resistance and Functions
Fumagalli steel wheels present a wide range of attractive styles and sizes, highly stylized, basic or mini-spare wheels – for light, medium and heavy vehicles.
Studies show that 40% of a vehicle appeal is at the wheels. Besides, those researches also demonstrate that the visual aspect of the wheel is the most meaningful factor for the consumer, and not the raw material of which the wheel is made. Since Fumagalli prioritizes design and style, its steel wheels also represent an attractive and low cost alternative to replace aluminum alloy wheels. The “Chromium Plated Cladding –Integrated Wheel” has great market acceptance due to its endurance, refined finishing and impeccable visual aspect. One other wheel concept that is becoming more and more popular in the market is the “Super Spoke” technology wheel, with high vent area, which provides style flexibility and ventilation for the brakes.
On the other hand, a nice look is not all in a wheel. High resistance is mandatory, and steel provides the required durability, while generating meaningful cost savings to the vehicle, with a style that matches that of alloy wheels.
The Advantage of Steel
Market surveys and independent case studies show that customers perceive stylized steel wheels as follows:
- Steel wheels are safer, more resistant and more durable;
- Steel wheels are more resistant to corrosion at the tire contact area.
- Steel wheels are more reliable when traveling on risky roads.
- They are an alternative to aluminum.
- They have a high cost benefit compared to aluminum wheels.
