Carbon Fibre wheels look set to replace alloys as they weigh third less and are more damage resistant. Here is an excerpt from Graham Hill’s article on thebestcarfinanceblog.co.uk
Alloy wheels to be replaced by more durable Carbon wheels
When alloy wheels came onto the market they were revolutionary, they were smarter than the old steel wheels, didnt need wheel covers that had a habit of flying off if you took a corner faster than 20 miles per hour, they were lighter and by simply changing the design of alloys fitted to your suped up Ford Fiesta you would change its whole appearance, like changing the design of glasses that you may wear.
The downside, from my point of view, is the ease with which they scuff. The light weight alloy looks good, is lighter and these days easy enough to fit tyres onto but when a lease car is returned this is the one part of the car that causes most disputes. Scuffed alloys are not fair wear and tear as many drivers believe.
