    Good to see the product line expanding!

    I'm not familiar with Spin Werkes, and . I know steel wheels are almost always technically an alloy, but when someone says "alloy wheels" to me, I usually think of aluminum. Don't know why, but that's just what I grew up hearing.

    The pic in the first post sure looks like a steel wheel to me...what do they use for their primary ingredient in the "alloy"?

    Iron.

    Other elements used are going to include manganese, carbon, phosphorous, and sulfur.

    Technically, if it's steel of any type it is an alloy.

    Unless it's aluminum. That's my point. In my experience of car jargon, "alloy wheels" means NOT iron-based (steel) alloy. But those look like steel.

    These are aluminum wheels.

    I am assuming the manufacturer was primarily focused on light and strong - a 15x7 wheel weighs about 12 lbs compared to 13.5 for a Kosei K1. Maybe that's why they look like a steel circle track wheel. Proven functional design.

    Googling it does look like aluminum and there are some posts about how light they are. C'mon guys, give Justin a little credit. What up with the pessimism posse?

    Who said anything about pessimism? So far, you're the only one.

    I just wanted to know if they were steel or aluminum. The "technical" definition of alloy, or the "car jargon" definition. Sean's reply was a little snarky, but I don't think anyone is bashing anything at all. Not my intent, anyway!

    And for the record, yes, I'm genuinely interested. Not in the immediate future, but I'm keeping my eye on options to resurrect a certain little car that would like a set of 13x10s...

    C'mon man, your Googling skills are stronger than that. It took like 3 seconds to find the answer.

    These are Aluminum. Sorry for any confusion. Hopefully the weight of these helps to make that more apparent.

    These are approximate weights given to me by Spin Werkes, for their Series 82 Wheels:

    Size_____ Weight
    13 x 7___ 8.75
    13 x 8___ 10.00
    13 x 10__ 10.10
    14 x 6___ 12.00
    14 x 7___ 11.20
    15 x 7___ 11.20
    15 x 8___ 12.20
    15 x 10__ 13.60
    15 x 12__ 13.70
    15 x 14__ 15.30
    16 x 7___ 13.25
    16 x 8___ 14.25
    16 x 9.5_ 16.00
    16 x 10__ 16.25

    Justin Barbry ran these on the front of his FSP Protege for the last couple years...
