The tire wheel is the rounded metal where the actual wheel is attached to. The rim is the reason that the wheel maintains its rounded shape. It is the reason that no matter how bumpy the road gets, it is always round-shaped, never getting deformed except when it’s blown up.

The normal way of producing a tire rim is by using a rectangular-shaped sheet of metal that is bent and molded to produce the rounded or cylindrical shape of wheel. The tire rim is an essential part of the car’s system for it to actually run on the road and for it to be safe.

Protect rims and be safe
Rims, when not properly taken care of can cause inconvenience, and worse, accidents. Thus, proper care is necessary. If one’s car rim is made of steel, then it is prone to rusting. Watch out for this because rust will compromise the reliability of one’s tires. Always clean the rims of the car through soap and water or using whatever one’s brand of rim recommends.
One has to make sure their rims are not corroded. If so, it might need to be replaced. For aluminum rims, rusting is not a problem, but corrosion is. To check, submerge the rim in a basin of water and see if there are bubbles. This indicates there are holes in it. If bubbles appear, have the rim fixed or replace it if necessary.
