If you’ve always wondered how alloy wheels were made, then check out this interesting tour of the Ray’s Engineering factory in Japan. Video after the jump.

They are much lighter and more corrosion resistant than plain carbon steel, but not quite as corrosion resistant as pure aluminium. Bare aluminium alloy surfaces will keep their apparent shine in a dry environment, but light amounts of corrosion products rub off easily onto skin when touched
