It offers excellent value for money and will allow you to discover where the market is heading, what the latest innovations are, and how your competitors are performing.
Since being rolled out by the Sumerians in around 3500 BC, the wheel has been constantly re-invented. Today, the main development trends in the automotive wheels industry centre on producing larger, brighter and cheaper wheels.
OEM's also require styling flexibility, reduced weight and high quality from their wheel suppliers today, and although the North American and European aluminium wheel market has grown over the past decade, the pace of growth has slowed recently, and advances in the use of steel has meant that manufacturers of steel wheels can meet alloy wheel designs head on. According to the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), steel wheels are making a comeback as vehicle makers realise that thanks to the development of new high-strength steels and improved design and simulation technology, they can save up to US$200 per vehicle, without making any sacrifice to quality or performance.
