Magnificent mag wheels: what is the difference between alloy wheels and mag wheels?

Mag wheels and alloy wheels are essentially the same thing, though they may or may not have magnesium in them. ‘Mag’ refers to aluminium-magnesium alloys. Magnesium alloy wheels were the first die-cast wheels produced and were originally used for racing, but their popularity during the 1960s led to the development of other die-cast wheels, particularly of aluminium alloys. The term, ‘mag wheels’, became synonymous with die-cast wheels made from any material – from modern alloy wheels to plastic and composite wheels used on bikes and wheelchairs.

What are the advantages of mag wheels?

Mag wheels come with a lot of key benefits that go beyond the cosmetic appeal. They are generally lighter, stronger and higher quality than regular steel wheels. They last longer, look better and help your vehicle perform better across all important performance measures. Mag wheels dissipate heat better. This means that they remain cooler when driving which results in less wear and tear on the tyres. Mag wheels are completely airtight which makes them excellent for tubeless tyres and gives them a major advantage over regular wheels.
