Even I was like “what?” when I first saw these two words together; but apparently, alloy steel is an element that is mainly made out of iron, but also has small components of carbon.
The most popular alloy steel would have to be stainless steel. It’s considered to be an alloy steel because it has a minimum of 10% chromium content. It is also more resistant to corrosion, stains, & rust that accumulates on your ordinary steel wheel.
It’s kind of weird because even though the name is “alloy steel”, it’s really not really just made of aluminum & steel. Steel is made up of different elements, & so is aluminum. Wouldn’t you think that when all of the elements combine, it would make one big explosion like you see them serving as 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee wheels? I guess I was wrong… once again.
