The wheels on a vehicle are created from stamped-steel parts that have been welded together. Wire wheels and one-piece cast or forged aluminum wheels — mag wheels — are often available as options on many cars and trucks. Racing cars will sometimes use magnesium wheels in an effort to save weight and increase performance, but this type of wheel is not practical on normal roads as salt corrodes them over time. Stamped wheels are made up of two parts — the rim and center. The wheel center is offset to allow for the suspension and brake components and is attached to the vehicle hub by bolts that are often called lugs. There are also ventilation holes in the wheel that help keep the brakes cool.
