The other part of the question got missed out. Hence again bringing this in quote

alloy wheels are much much harder and sturdier than regular rims.

for example all the 4X4 safaris come with alloys as std.

esp the indian manufacturers make it to last on our indian roads.

my safari has done more than 90k k kms on the orginal alloys and has been in the hands of many road side tyre wallas,not even a single crack yet.

take the desicion on what your heart says bud,it's never wrong.

hey guys on my recent visit to J.C.road here in bangalore (area has most spare part dealers) i found that there r so many alloys to choose from now days,so want to ask u guys that how do u go about choosing the right set of alloys (both bikes n cars). do the no. of spokes ( the design ) make a difference in stability , speed etc. what all metals make the alloy. how r alloys different from the regular spoked wheels ( performance n stability n woking aspects).
r there any vital information one should know before investing in alloys.
kindly throw on the above.

I think it is very important to use branded alloys, nowdays you see a lot of brands and one does not know what to choose. The problem is the wheel is a very important part of your car and choosing the right one will be very curcial to ones driving safety.......especially on high speeds....so do some research before you buy!!
