What are these wheels made out of?
The wheels are made of aluminum.
Does that mean that they are lighter than they look?
Your assumption is a fair one. Aluminum tends to be much lighter than their steel counterparts.
I’ve heard that aluminum has the ability to dissipate heat well? Was that a concern when they designed this wheel?
Actually, yes, the information we have specifically notes that the Aluminum of this wheel does give your wheel the opportunity to vent heat through the hand holes provided and the makeup of the wheel itself.
What does the J type wheel designation mean?
J means that the rim flange is J-shaped. J shapes are the most common for passenger vehicles.
Wait, you said that the weight is reduced between these and steel wheels. Do you have any idea how much they are reduced?
The manufacturer tells us that the weight difference is around 12 lbs.
I’m not a great driver… Does it protect against damage?
The manufacturer says it provides some resistance to curb damage. Please do not expect miracles or for it not to damage the rims in some way. However, the manufacturer does say that the rim will give some resistance to curb damage.
